Description

extreme urban suburb of Bombay, India. About 3 to 4 inches in length, very slim, longish tail, very tiny limbs (almost disproportionately small). Blackish brown back with yellow border running on either side. Conspicuous red / orange tail. It was out in the open in muddy / concretized surroundings of a building at about 1 pm. This is almost peak monsoon so the Sun is not shining very bright and there is plenty of water / moisture / humidity all over.

Description from Wikipedia

Writhing skinks, genus Lygosoma, are members of the lizard family Scincidae, where they form the type genus of the subfamily Lygosominae. They are primarily found in India, but some occur in nearby regions. The common name refers to the way these stubby-legged animals move, snake-like but slower and more awkward.

No range data available.
