Description

S. olivaceus found burrowing under rocks in a flower bed near the guest quarters at Independence Creek Nature Preserve. The specimen is female, and gravid (pic included), leading me to believe she might be constructing a burrow to lay her eggs. Specimen was preserved and added to the University of Texas herp collection.
