SPINIFEX SNAKE LIZARD Delma nasuta Kluge, 1974
One of the more common legless lizards found throughout mainland Australia, it occurs throughout the drier parts of the western two thirds of Australia.
The Spinifex Snake Lizard attains 40 cm in length. This nocturnal species occurs in a variety of grassy habitats where it is assumed to feed on small insects, and possibly small lizards.
This species often occurs in one area in large numbers whilst being absent from similar adjacent habitat. The breeding habits and general biology are largely unknown.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
