Speckled green and black lizard with no legs and a white belly.
Found dead in a yard in central Florida. Late springtime with hot days, not far from a lake.
That's definitely an honest mistake when dealing with legless lizards. :-) I was just skimming through the snake mission and was tidying it up a bit. Thanks for taking care of that.
Actually Aaron, it was mistakenly not removed from Snakes mission after the comments below clarified that this spotting is indeed a limbless lizard, not a snake as I had originally believed.My bad.
Hi there. This was mistakenly placed into the "Snakes of the World" mission. Please remove it and consider the "Reptiles of the World" mission instead. Thanks!Here's the link:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7970...
Thanks for the help Brian and ForestDragon!
I would agree with Brian. This is a Glass Lizard. Good luck with ID! Nice spotting. I love the legless lizards. They are very interesting animals.
Looks to be one of the Glass Lizards in your area: http://www.floridiannature.com/GlassLiza...
