Augrabies Flat Lizard (Platysaurus broadleyi)

Family Cordylidae

Some animals/insects are only found in one small area and this lizard is one of them.
 They occupy a small area around Augrabies Falls which is situated in the Northern part of SA, near the Namibia border. The male reaches a length of about 15cm. The female looks very different to the male.
