This little critter was sunning itself on a kanuka branch last weekend.  The photos have gone off to the experts to confirm the species. They say it's a girl. It's either a Northland Green, an Auckland Green or a hybrid! Either way she's reasonably uncommon.

It was within our pest control area, they suggested we didn't say exactly where we saw it because there's a black market trade for these guys. I thought they were kidding, but sadly no.
