Caption

Legless Lizard, (Delma tincta), family Pygopidae. This species is widespread across tropical northern Australia. This family of reptiles occur only in Australia and Papua New Guinea. They are closely related to the geckos. Superficially snake-like, they have no forelimbs but vestigial hindlimbs in the form of very small flaps. They are insect eaters and totally harmless. The lizard in this image is regenerating a broken tail. This species appears to be a mimic of the venomous collared whipsnake.
