    Hi,

    I almost stepped on a snake lying on a footpath in Crowdy Bay National Park, NSW, and I would like to know which one it is. It was rather small, I would say 50cm to 70cm. I didn't get a full shot, sorry.

    Thanks for helping.

    It's a legless lizard, common scaly-foot. You can see the limb flaps in the last two pictures as well.

    Wow, I didn't even know this exists! I thought this is old skin or something like that. Thanks!
