Snake or what

13 Aug 2017 17:34 - 15 Aug 2017 09:14 #4541 by Robby L
Snake or what was created by Robby L
Is this a very small snake an legless lizard or what, It was about 3 inches long overall and kept disappearing under dead leaves so was very difficult to get a photo of.

Definitely a skink. However I am not very familiar with the various species. My guess would be the Striped Legless Skink, Isopachys anguinoides. But I will ask a friend of mine to see if he can confirm this.

I have also discussed this with a good friend of mine, and he came up with the same ID, Striped Legless Skink, Isopachys anguinoides.
Cool find, I have yet to see one. I know they should be around Kaeng Krachan as well, but have still eluded me.
