Shorthead Lance Skink

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Shorthead Lance Skink (Acontias breviceps) is one of several species of legless lizards. These skinks will reach lengths up to about 10 cm long, but are normally a bit smaller than that.

At first glance, they can easily be confused with a large earthworm. Like earthworms, the Shorthead Lance Skink is a pinkish brown color, and burrows itself in the ground, rarely surfacing.

They are native to the sandy regions of South Africa, where these lizards burrow through the sand in hunt of ants and other small insects.
