This usually small lizard surprised me by running across the path in front of me. Now, I’m not averse to chasing the odd lizard to get some cool pics, and skinks are fairly common around here. But this one surprised me by his size. He would have been around 25 – 30 cm long. His movements weren’t exactly skink-like either… in fact I remember looking twice because he moved more like a small goanna. He was fairly curious too, sitting there and staring despite a human and two dogs coming towards him. It was only at the last minute that he took off into the bushes.
I’d like to know what species this guy is, if anyone knows.
