General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Riverland and elsewhere
Woo hoo, our 900th species identified on Ellura!
A little dragon at only about 40mm snout to vent length. They measure reptiles this way because so many loose their tails and total length doesn't really describe them as accurately.
Quite similar to our Nobbi's until you take a closer look
