[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Also known as Shovel snouted Lizard(Aporosaura anchietae) uses his shovel snout to dive into the sand and can completely cover itself in seconds. When it has disappeared you only have to remember where and you can easily catch it to take fotos!
This foto was taken in the sand dunes of Sossusvlei.
