[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Shingleback (Trachydosauras rougosus) is a large lizard with four short stumpy legs. They are related to the skink family, and can be orange to greenie blue in colour. They have one to four babies in Summer or early Autumn, and live mostly in the dry parts of Southern Australia. It is believed that these lizards can live up to fifty years. The Shingleback is almost identical to the Blue Tongue lizard though the Shingleback has very sharp scales and a blunt tail.

Interesting treatment here Carl with the 2 views in the one presentation. I particularly like the very in focus lower head on photo. Unfortunately his rear end is a little out of focus in the top one - a difficulty with zooming in. A good pair of photos though.
