I believe this to be a Goanna egg chamber, excavated several weeks ago and now under repair by the termites in the mound. It will be a spot worth watching in spring when Lacey eggs hatch.

Further to my recent posting, I am now of the opinion that I am seeing hatchlings rather than juveniles at this mound, based on a size comparison with those in Pete Constable's video on the Atlas of Life site. There are at least two individuals that I am seeing, based on facial patterns.

These photos were taken at the mound where I have been watching the Lacey hatchlings over the last several days, as posted previously. The Lacey in these photos is an adult that was digging into the mound. There is a belief that a mother Lacey returns to the mound to release the hatchlings, but as the hatchlings have been out for several days already, I am interpreting this sighting today as likely predation.

After some weeks of field observation, consternation, speculation and deliberation - plus great co-operation and spotting from our neighbours - last night we observed and photographed a Lace Monitor laying eggs in a termite mound. The Lacey is ‘Georgia’ who I saw digging an egg chamber in the mound on 21 Dec (see last photo attached). Last night’s pics are 1- you can see Georgia’s face inside the mound; 2- shows her upper body with tail wrapped around (so that is how they deal with that long tail in such a confined space!); 3- just before dark, showing her shoulder area; 4- this morning when I returned she was out and ran up a tree (if Laceys behave the same as Rosenbergs Monitors she may have been guarding against marauders or about to backfill the hole). Now it is up to the termites to repair the hole and create the incubation chamber which will enable the eggs to develop over coming months until hatching takes place c. August.

The egg chamber dug in a termite mound by Lacey 'Georgia' recently (as posted on this site), having been repaired by the termites (pic 2) has been partly opened by a Goanna (pic 1). The new dig does not extend as far as the egg chamber; presumably the eggs are still secure.

I haven't confirmed markings, but I believe these two have been following each other around since at least New Years. This time they came together - the Bell's phase moving up the hill and the regular coming across the rocks. Seems like they initially puff their throats out and that gives some kind of indication about who is the boss. I think only the Bells used its tongue from memory, so I don't know what that means - checking if it was the winner? Eventually only the regular having its throat still puffed and then chased the other one down the hill.

This "Bell's phase lace monitor was observed from a bird hide where a man-made watering point has been constructed. This animal was oblivious to our presence and so very relaxed.
An immature animal less than 1 metre in length, hence the outstanding colours in this distinctively patterned individual.
