Pygmy Mulga Goanna (Varanus gilleni)
There are few tree-dwelling reptiles in Arid Australia, but wherever there
are sufficient trees or shrubs, this species, the Pygmy Mulga Goanna can be found.
The mulga shrublands favoured by this species are sensitive to disturbance and
while they are extensive now, their range could be dramatically reduced by
changing factors like bushfire frequency, increased pastoral activity, mining
and other ‘developments’.
