Junior rangers’ exciting find

Thorny devil at Uluru

Thorny devil at Uluru | Isn’t it a fascinating looking creature?

Uluru’s junior rangers made an exciting discovery when they found a pregnant thorny devil at the sunset viewing area.

The students of Nyangatjatjara College were taking a dot painting class with three senior ladies when one student noticed the bigger-than-usual lizard. The lizards are emerging now after a cold winter, but this one was greeted with special enthusiasm when the children noticed her bulging stomach.

It was great to see the kids all knew the signs that the lizard was carrying eggs, because I didn’t!

The junior rangers have been learning about the park, tackling weeding and planting – and also had the opportunity to perform inma (ceremonial dance) on an overnight campout.
