Mole Lizard by shaggz86 Mole Lizard by shaggz86
Believe it or not, this is a lizard. It may look like a worm, but if you look really close a the head, you will see eyes and a pair of front limbs. This gnarly looking reptile is called a Mole Lizard (Bipes biporus), also called a Worm Lizard. Everytime we go on these Baja California trips, everyone is talking about wishing they find a Bipes. Since they live underground, these lizards tend to be very rare to come across. Lucky Dean happened to find this guy under a rock, going down a hole. By far the coolest thing found on this trip.

I hereby give *DeviantHerps permission to display this deviation in their club gallery.
