Caption: Sequence of a female Sri Lankan Kangaroo Lizard (Otocryptis wiegmanni) laying her eggs in lowland rainforest: in this clip she fills the hole in and tamps the earth down by very rapidly pounding it with her head, rather like a jackhammer. Sinharaja National Park and World Heritage Site, Sri Lanka. Endemic.
