GREEN LINED WORM LIZARD Ophiodes striatus
Worm Lizards, or "Glass Snakes" as they are sometimes called, are essentially lizards with no legs. They may look a bit like snakes, but pay attention to how they move and the fact that the head and the body are not clearly differentiated. This species is easily recognised because of its distinctive markings and green colouration.
