Broad-Banded Sand Swimmer
(Desert Banded Skink)
The photograph above shows a sub-adult Broad-banded sand-swimmer from the Dublin area of South Australia. Although this common nocturnal species is often found in sandy areas they are also found in rocky areas and are sometimes called Desert banded skinks. They are found in all states of Australia except Tasmania, mainly occurring in desert and semi-desert regions
