Earn your Junior Ranger badge!

On an excursion this weekend to North Stradbroke Island (AKA "Straddie"), we stumbled upon a sandy area near a swamp. It was smooth and unbroken except for two parallel prints, each indentation long and thin, at regular intervals. We were fascinated when we realized they were kangaroo tracks! Try your hand at identifying other tracks we came upon during our travels.

  1. Is the bottom picture from a lizard?

  2. Yes! Good call. The bottom picture is of goanna tracks. Goannas are a type of monitor lizard. Isn't it neat how you can see where its tail swished through the sand?

    The tracks in the top picture are from a crab.
