Burton's Legless Lizard - Lialis burtonis

The Burton's Legless Lizard (Lialis burtonis) is an amazing lizard to say the least. These are snake-like LIzard-eating Lizards that prey on small species of lizards in Australia and New Guinea. They do very well on captivity on a diet of Tropical HOuse Geckos and pinkies. They have the strangest faces out of all the skink species and have gaping wide flat mouths that can open wide almost like a crocodile's mouth. This species is rare in captivity but is highly recommended for expert keepers.
