Cheetah Plains General Manager, Gary Ray often locates some spectacular smaller creatures in his garden, and his eagle eyes spotted a Limpopo Girdled Lizard:
Although fairly widespread in our area (lowveld), these lizards are seldom seen. They are generally found hidden under debris such as dead bark, tree hollows and in rocky areas.
Generally quite small lizards getting up to about 6inches long, but they are protected by large, sharp scales on their body. As with all lizards, they are able to shed their tails when extremely necessary.
They can be found sunning themselves in the early morning, as they require the suns heat to get their metabolism going
You must always keep your eyes open for the smaller creatures while in the bush, as you never know what you might locate
