Legless LizardDelma impar

Striped Legless-lizard

Common name: Striped Legless-lizard

SVL: 100mm. Total length: 300mm

Endangered

Striped Legless-lizard is one of 21 species of Delma found in Australia. It varies in colour, but is typically light brown with dark brown or blackish stripes running the length of the body, although, these stripes can be pale or even absent in some individuals. The underside is generally white, cream or pinkish in colour, and the head is slightly darker than the body. Hatchlings lack the distinctive stripes of adults, but have a characteristic dark brown or black head which may be intended to deter predators by mimicking the Eastern Brown Snake.

Distribution: Found in natural temperate grassland sites which have remained undisturbed.
