Shingleback Lizard
by RobGeraghty, on Flickr

I've seen lots of lizards in the wild before, but somehow I had never seen a Shingleback Lizard.

Wow, this guy looks like he has armor plating. A unique looking lizard for sure. Great capture.

Thanks! Yes, they have thick scales! I'm not sure what the function of the scales may be. I guess their typical predators would be dingoes or perhaps quolls. They are too big for most birds.

I'm glad this character is small - I'd hate to meet a large version of one of the these!

Thanks, Rob, for another cool shot of a creature I've never seen before!

Thanks, Jer! I don't know that there were ever giant skinks in Australia, but a mere 20,000 years ago there were monitor lizards the size of crocodiles.

I've seen pinecones that looked like this, but never one that had a head and legs. Thanks for posting.
