Nope, it’s not Man Vs. Wild, just another day in Queensland with a few of our more leathery, googly-eyed residents. Masked by their rugged surrounds, they’re quiet, fast and, let’s be honest, a few of them are a little scary.

If climbing trees or venturing into the wilderness at night isn’t really your caper, we’ve found some of Queensland’s finest reptiles for you to view, minus the Bear Grylls-type adventure.

What rad reptiles have you spotted on your travels?

If she’s not strolling along the beach or marvelling at the scenery from a well-placed café, Jasmine can be found exploring with (or running after) her energetic one-year-old son. Motivated by her love for nature and everything in it, Jasmine has spent most of her career writing about the world’s wildlife for zoos in Australia and New Zealand.
