STRIPED LEGLESS LIZARD
Delma impar

Delma impar
This nicely patterned Striped Legless Lizard (Delma impar) was found near Naracoorte in South Australia.
It was very vocal squeaking almost continually!

Note that some Striped Legless Lizards are much paler than this and the striping may be very weak.

This sign is at Bool Lagoon Game Reserve in South Australia.
