This Blue-tongue Lizard was in good health,but really didn't wish to be moved off the road.It was destined to be crushed if it had not budged. They have a habit of "basking in the sun" to warm themselves up - somewhat dangerous habit, resulting in many of them being squashed by cars.

For a fat lizard, it can actually move reasonably fast (nothing like a Sand Goanna) but the timing of its tongue-flicking defeated me. I could not capture that image.
Here is a shot I took in 2007.
