    Please help I think I may have a dragon borrow in my garden

    I know nothing about Australian reptiles but I live in Brisbane in Queensland near the river and I do often admire various dragons and pythons that I see in the Arboretum. I was startled to discover a rather large hole at the base of a tree in my garden. Although it may have been formed by collapsing soil at the tree roots, the circumference of the whole at the top I would say is about 60 cm. but Iím not sure how deep it goes. I am a little nervous that it may contain a snake although it seems unlikely a snake would have such a large hole. I have spied a toad or a frog diving into it. Having read some of your posts I am hoping perhaps it is a dragon nest. I will try and post picture please can someone help identify what it might be? Tammy

    pretty hard to see the photo,it's too small for my old eyes but snakes don't dig holes ,they only occupy existing ones.
    slave to all my reptiles

    Pretty sure water dragons bury their eggs and then leave. Probably more like a mammal hole I'd reckon. Many of our native marsupials will hide the entrance though so not sure what this could be. Watch it at night to find out, however most animals will have multiple burrows they use so may not be in the use when you're checking it.
