Scincus scincus meccensis
Reddish-yellow back with dark cross-bands; white underparts; short indistinct neck; long snout extending beyond the lower jaw; short, tapering, pointy tail; extremely smooth body scales that produce less friction than polished steel and glass. Adults have dark flank-stripes.
Spends most of its time hiding or searching for insects in the sand. Moves fast in a swimming motion on loose sand. Seeks shade under bushes or flat stones. Difficult to observe in the wild.
Sandfish feed on insects.
