Description: We seem to be missing this species/subspecies, so thought I'd upload one. Despite accounts to the contrary, did not spit readily; in both encounters (in the first of which I almost stepped on it), it raised its hood until I stepped (/leapt) backwards, and then put its hood down and went straight down its hole. In the first instance, I'd been trampling around within 20m of its shrublet/burrow for about half an hour before our encounter. Very well behaved. Body above solid black; underneath - as can be made out in lower parts of this photograph - off-white.

Description: Small, rather erratic in its movement. Late at night, in a lull in a storm, crossing a driveway. It clearly disliked the light, so I opted to settle for these rather poor images rather than further distress it.

Description: Bizarre reptile: completely blind and translucent. The skin is soft and feels loose, there is an indentation running down the spine and it seems that is where the skin attaches itself to the body. One of the most striking behaviours I observed in this animal was the ability to reverse its movement completely.
