Shingleback or Stumpy-tailed Lizard

Get out of the Radio Shack and Live Life

Walking at lunch today I passed this perfect specimen of the Shingleback. Length is about 350mm or 14 inches in the old scale. The shingleback lizard is native to Australia. The name ‘Stumpy’ is from the short tail.

Canberra is well-known as the bush capital.
