Whilst driving along in our ratpack filled Tarago van to the magnificent Blackdown Tablelands which had begun looming in front of us, our driver Mike (Newcal) saw a lizard in the middle of the road in front of us so we stopped and checked it out. I coincidentally had just started a mini film and captured the event. After we got out and observed the lizard, it suddenly ran at enormous speed under the van. As you can see we didn't find it again and we ended this film with one of my maniacal laughs. We travelled for another 15 minutes or so and began slowly winding up the tablelands road when we sighted our first Livistona fulva in habitat, man what a sight.We stopped for a second, some of us got out and thought we might back up further down the road for a better look at some other palms we missed. As we backed up what do we find ? the same lizard, he had hitched a ride all that way and dropped off. Amazing courage, stamina, toughness of this aussie lizard.
