NOT a snake in the grass!

Post by Mike B in OKlahoma »


Legless lizards are lizards that lost their legs. This gave them the advantage of being able to move more freely through dense undergrowth, and even loose earth, in search of prey, as we see this guy doing here.

Great photo Mike. I have not seen one of these in a long time.
