When you say the geographic range has no limits, does that mean it's natural range or is it introduced to some places?

It's natural range
No legs.
There is something that is much more scarce, something finer by far , something rarer than ability.

Seemingly NO LIMITS.

Just a matter of interpretation.

Does your comment of "unlimited range" pertain to vertical range? ;)

Hi Wesley

I hope we are on the same page, but yes it is a vertical range. Once again, the clue is only a matter of interpretation.

Todays clue: I am a popular reptile!

Todays clue: I am an official reptile of a state.

To speed it along: I am very very adaptable.

Nope but a good guess.

Hmmm not as easy as I thought.

Well the fact that you say it is an official reptile of a STATE, makes me believe it is from the US.

Quick Google search only reveals a few no-legged options for official state reptiles.

So my question for the day, is the reptile from the US?

Hi Westley

Yes it is, but remember my first clue. Seemingly NO LIMITS, so it might even extend the USA borders.
Seemingly NO LIMITS has a bigger meaning for being very very adaptable, this should give it away if you take all into consideration.
