22. Grammatophora barbata.
This formidable looking reptile is better known under the name of "Jew Lizard." It cannot be considered a common form on the Murray, but its distribution extends from the East to the West Coast; how far it ranges North I have not been able to ascertain, I know however that it occurs at Wide Bay, and is probably found all over the continent.
The number of eggs produced by this reptile is most likely from 6 to 8, perhaps more.
