Not something you see every day

I was out in the bush again today and came across this beautiful 3' (900mm) long lace monitor, simply stunning, I would have liked a cuddle but the monitor didnt...:D and scampered further up the tree.

Amazing! Quite a unique shaped head that is :)

Will it eat fire ants? If yes, send a boat load to Texas, USA ;)

These fire ants are ants from hell. They bite with one end while stinging with the other end. The sting feels like fire, hence the name fire ant. You get a pustule with every bite. They kill everything that lives or grows on the ground.

While I was thinking of importing one of your anteaters, I remembered reports of the importation of rabbits to Australia and toads to some Pacific islands where they flourished and displaced native animals....Nevertheless, we have begun ti import a little fly which inserts its egg into a crack in the armour of the fire ant and ultimately kills it. I hope it works. :)

P.S. Fire ants would swarm that ant eater and kill it with ten thousand bites, then use it for food.

A very sad thing for Australia...

When it rains, they float down the river in balls of ants. Some live and some die, but they spread in ways that are surprising. :-/
