Here Be Dragons

Morgan's Wild Life

During medieval times (the end of the fifth century until the end of the fifteenth century) this phrase was written on maps to signify dangerous or unexplored territories, imitating earlier maps which had illustrations of dragons and sea serpents.
The waters around my part of the world are relatively well known to whale watchers, surfers, fisherfolk and the like, so the chances of spotting a dragon are slim, unless you are looking for Australian ones. Although rare to see in the surf, the Eastern Water Dragons (Intellegama lesuerii) live in the rainforest, parks and waterways along the coastland.
They often adopt statuesque poses but when they run, the little ones are a comical sight, as their heads and tails come up, making them look like the letter U on legs. Pictured is an adult dragon on the Kooloonbung walking trail..
