Lerista bougainvillii (Gray, 1839)
This 15 cm lizard is found in most parts of Victoria, the southern highlands and slopes in NSW, and south east South Australia. It is usually found in rocky areas. The taxonomic status of this lizard is in doubt.
A burrowing species it is usually caught during the day when found sheltering under ground litter. This lizard feeds on ants, termites, and other small insects.
Some populations are oviparous, producing from 2-4 soft-shelled eggs which hatch shortly after being laid. Other populations, usually in colder areas, are live-bearing producing 2-4 live young. Mating in this species occurs in late summer, autumn and the cooler months.
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.
