The Pink-tailed Worm-lizard (also known as Pink-tailed Legless-lizard or Aprasia parapulchella) is a vulnerable species and a large population occurs in the eastern part of Googong Township. They grow up to 25cm in length and look like a combination of small snake and worm.
As the site is very steep in parts, please advise if you have any mobility issues. Sturdy shoes, hat, long sleeves and water bottle are recommended.
You know what they say … The early bird catches the Pink-tailed Worm … Lizard.
