One of my favourite places in Brisbane is the boardwalk along the river from Southbank to the Queensland Museum and Art Gallery precinct. Every time I go there I see some of the local wildlife.
Have you ever seen a spoon-snake? This one was in the garden near the Queensland Art Gallery Café. While spoon-snakes are extremely rare and elusive, they are also quite tame.
I didn’t go close enough to this lizard to find out if he was tame. He looked very fierce and I didn’t want to interrupt him while he was perfecting his camouflage skills.
My favourite creature is this giant silver cicada. He lives on Melbourne Street between the Museum and the Performing Arts Centre. His wings glisten like rainbows and he sings beautifully.
The most unusual creature I’ve seen in Brisbane was this…
well, I’m not entirely sure what he was.
Does anyone know?
