VIETNAM NET (Hanoi, Vietnam) 03 January 11 Four-legged ‘snake’ found in An Giang
A man in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang said Wednesday he had caught a strange-looking reptile that looks like a snake with four legs.
Curious crowds have rushed to the house of Nguyen Ngoc Huynh of Chau Thanh District to see the 15-cm “snake.”
The reptile is as big as a chopstick, with yellow and shiny skin.
Huynh said it can move and swim with its four legs.
Local residents said it may be a rare lizard species called Lygosoma angeli found in Vietnam.
The species is commonly known as angel's writhing skink, which refers to the way these stubby-legged animals move, snake-like but slower and more awkward.
