    I thought i'd post a pic of a species not many people get to see, due to its relatively small distribution and presumably elusive habits.

    It's a pretty bad pic of a pretty ugly individual (compared to others), but lighting wasn't desirable. Taken in summer 2005 in ze Pilbara region (duh).

    the full post is here.......http://www.naturewa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19

    Does anyone have some pics of this species they could share?

    Tiny.
    Total length is quoted as 47cm in wilson and Swan, but 2/3 of that is tail.
