Shark Bay Shingleback

Tiliqua rugosa palarra


A subspecies of the Western Shingleback, they look quite similar, but the Shark Bay subspecies is smaller and generally darker in colour.


Semi arid coastal region of Shark Bay in Western Australia. I found this guy among the red sand dunes at Monkey Mia.
