Can anyone tell me what sort of lizard this is? Seen in West Coast NP on 3 December 2008.

The lizzard is a little bit small, but its a girdle lizzard (Cordylus sp.), and because it looks very dark I'd put my money on the black girdle lizzard, Cordylus niger (wouldn't put all my money on it though :wink: ).
