A legless lizard...
So, I know.
It looks like a snake. Long, skinny, no legs - Snake.
Uh, no, legless lizard.
I am sorry.
Yes. Legless. Lizard.
Why not a snake? Good question.
Turns out (I didn't know and my major in college was Zoology) that a snake--a snake--has fixed eye lids, no blinky. This fella has a clear half eyelid on the lower part of his eye.
So, lizard. Legless.
Scientists are goofier than IT guys.
