Any Ideas on ID?

Postby Sico » Thu Mar 14, 2013 9:52 pm

This guy hitched a ride back with some people from Harrismith and was found in their luggage when they got home.
I'm not very good on my indigenous lizard ID's, any help?

It's definitely one of he Nucras species.

I don't have my field guide handy, but I guess it is N. lalandii.

Those guys are FAST! Agree with Wes.
