Can someone identify this lizard for me please. The photo was taken right outside our home on a farm Rawsonville.
Thanks in advance.

I dont have my field guide handy, but looks like a Short -legged Seps (Tetradactylus seps).

They are fairly common in the Western Cape. After rains like now (or I assume it has been raining) you will be seeing them about.
