And this, apparently, is not a snake, but a freaking legless lizard. What?
Thank you for spending a moment looking at lizards. Can you believe how amazing? I was looking for some reference for an illustration and I kept crying out, "Wow!" and "Holy Cow! Look at this one!" and I had to share. I'm such a big kid this way, being constantly overwhelmed and amazed by the weird wonderfulness of our planet, I will probably turn this into a random little series of celebrations. I wonder what will be up next.
