    Nice photo's everyone, have been overseas for a few weeks, good to see this thread again :).
    Was sitting out in the loungeroom before, looked over at one of my tanks to see the adult male was doing this....

    He's been there for about 20mins now looking around, but he lost the sand cap some time ago. I've never seen it before, any ideas? Made me laugh anyway.

    Hey Dragonlover,
    They're actually a legless lizard, great for people whose parents/other halfs don't like snakes....and great because they are just plain cool :)

    I'm lucky don't have to worry about other peoples likes/dislikes as I am divorced and my kids have all flown the coop(not that that's a prob as they all love reps).I have 2 adult central & 2 baby black soil beardies ATM but tempted to expand haha

    that's cool I thought they were snakes though,only ever saw 1 legless in the bush in blue mountains

    Can the Scalyfoots be handled without them become stressed and dropping their tails?

    Provided you do it slowly and deliberately they seem fine with it. Having said that I don't get them out for a play like a snake, just move them around between/within enclosures during cleaning etc.

    You can pick them up by the tails (captives), they're very reluctant to shed their tails, even wild individuals.

    It seems this thread has lost some momentum so I thought I'd add some photos to restart it...

    I don't think they need identification and they are pretty self-explanatory. I apologise for the horrible, disastrous, utterly disgusting quality of the following images.

    I would love to see more captive burton's photos if possible, especially of them feeding.

    Cheers

    Some more:

    A couple of wild shots, schraderi and a burtons. Bit old now but don't think they are up on here. The gf may have posted them on other forums though, they're her shots.
