The Shingleback has many names, like Bob-tailed Lizard, Sleepy Lizard or Stumpy-tailed Lizard. It can be found west of the Great Dividing Range. It's the most unusual looking of the blue-tongue lizards with its very short, stumpy tail and large rough scales. The Shingleback too is dark brown, with or without blotches.
