This was the book you should buy ... It had a Green Python on the cover and is a definitive work on the subject.  But it is now available on CD-rom! Click here for further details. Delma tincta De Vis, 1888
This 30 cm lizard is found throughout the northern two thirds of Australia. It usually but not always has dark head markings.
These dark head markings make this lizard superficially similar in appearance to young venomous Brown Snakes Pseudonaja spp., an adaptation which possibly serves to deter potential predators from attacking. Found in all types of habitats ranging from rainforests to treeless deserts this lizard is found during the day sheltering under cover such as rocks, logs, etc. At night it is commonly seen crossing roads.
However it is rarely caught when crossing roads, due to its' habit of standing up on its' tail and jumping away at high speed like some kind of hopping animal.
Presumed to be insectivorous this mainly nocturnal lizard is little known.

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.
