Lizards of Northern Territory + My Dad = disaster!!!

We have a family of 8. 6 kids and mum and dad. During the Spring holidays a few years ago we decided to go on a camping trip out to Uluru. So we all hopped into our big troop carrier, connected the caravan and off we went.

We were through our 3rd day of travel and I was watching the road, as I was bored with the sameness of the desert (as 14 year olds are). Dad however was fascinated with all the flora and fauna and was consistantly staring out all the windows and pointing them out. As I was watching the road, out ran a 2 metre-or-so lizard, which was bright orange! Absolutly beautiful!!! However, as dad was side tracked he didnt see it.

"DAD, DAD, DAD!!! WATCH OUT!" only I was too late. Bang - bang, just like a speed bump, we hit the beauty. Since the first one, dad also hit another 6 frillies and another big goanna throughout our voyage. So many speed bumps! I have never let him forget it! So funny, yet so sad...
