He is about as thick as a a finger (thicker than a pencil). The front part of "nose" is hard like a beak. (you can see a line dividing it from the rest of his face) So far he eating well (~10 mealworms and 2-3 small crix every other day), but I am still hand feeding him. My husband thinks he looks like a leech :-( I have posted another pic here, hopefully it works
:It has the colors of an A. pulchra but its head is completely different and the amount of the body covered in olive green is so little compared to A. pulchra. This seems to be some kind of asian Ophisaurus species to me but i am not certain. It looks like a young Ophosaurus formosensis to me. How thick is your animal? CA worm lizards are only as thin as a pencil at most. I will see what I can find but I am really unsure of what you own.
