aka Stumpy-tailed Lizard; Boggi;
Sleepy Lizard, Bobtail Lizard,
Two-headed Lizard and Pinecone Lizard
I have been waiting to catch a photo of this lizard for a couple of weeks. I first spotted it seeking a cool damp spot during the heat. Today it was seeking the warmth of the tyres along the driveway that have agapanthus growing in them.
This is a good spot for it to live because the agapanthus are renown for attracting snails and one of the Shinglebacks favorite meals is a snail!!!
