Lizard discoveries in the Pilbara
Updated Wed May 26, 2010 10:24am AEST
Two new species of lizard have been discovered in the Pilbara.
Reptile expert Paul Doughty believes the Mosaic Desert Skink and Northern Beak-faced Gecko are previously unknown and are not found anywhere else in the world.
“When you get out there in a place like the Pilbara you can actually pick up brand new species if you know what you’re looking for.
“The Northern Beak-faced gecko, this is a very cute lil’ fella. He is 6-8 centimetres long, has a very sharp face. They’re red with white pale yellowy spots.
“The Mosaic Desert Skink is a pretty skink with sort of fine checkerboard pattern with yellow and brown along the back and it’s got sort of bands around the tail and a yellowy head and it’s quite a handsome beast.”
The WA Museum says the new species are found in a wide enough area that mining activities should not threaten their survival.
Along the warm coastal lowlands of New South Wales, the yellow-bellied three-toed skink lays eggs to reproduce. But individuals of the same species living in the state’s higher, colder mountains are almost all giving birth to live young: here.
