This painting of goannas nesting is about the goanna’s cycle of breeding and all the perils for their young. Goannas lay their eggs in termite hills because they keep at a perfect constant temperature during incubation, and the eggs are also guarded from predators such as carnivorous mammals, snakes and my mother’s people. We would eat goannas at all stages: eggs, young, adolescence and mature. They are part of our ancestral diet and a predominant part of our culture.
