Beware Australian lizards: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-16/ ... d/11420144
An elderly couple have been badly injured trying to break up a fight between their dog and a goanna in north Queensland.

The 72-year-old man underwent surgery after being bitten by the goanna while his wife was treated for her injuries at the Proserpine Hospital.

The couple's dog was killed during the attack.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

Goannas help keep the number of poisonous snakes down by eating them... :tea:

I've seen a couple of big ones in the bush - they're pretty impressive...

Yeah, the fact a lizard can generate the force to break bones with its bite is definitely impressive. You can hang most of our lizards from your ears!
