Wild Tiliqua Gigas *Graphic*

This gives insight to the natural habitat of Tiliqua gigas. This shows the species they live with as well as their environment.

The native people also believe that they are venomous, which is why the animal in the second link is injured(they stabbed it).

Oh jeez, I can't bring myself to look at the second pic for fear of what scarring it may do to me :O
Thanks for these, though.

What species is this second one?

Almost looks like that so called "Hypo Reduced Pattern Northern" that actually turned out to be a golden Irian Jaya..

Similar to the animal you are talking about, but that animal was much more red.
