Voeltzkowia fierinensis

Postby Ophidiophile » Sun Mar 15, 2015 6:58 am

Here's a not-so-great photo of one of the craziest animals at Hamm yesterday - Voeltzkowia fierinensis. This is a Madagascan skink with no eyes, no external ears, no front legs, but two tiny back legs. The seller had 3 or 4 CB babies and they were relatively cheap. Had I arranged in advance for a way to get them back to the US, I probably would have bought them!

Blow the photo up to full size and try to find the back leg in the photo!

I think that it's a prank, its secretly just a worm but somebody glued tiny back legs. but in all seriousness dam that is weird.

That is awesome. It is always great to see people work with the obscure species.
