You are correct Jamster, congrats!
There is something that is much more scarce, something finer by far , something rarer than ability.

Well now that the forum seems to have livened up a bit, lets see if we can get this going in full again.

A nice simple one.
This reptile inhabits a series of islands in which it shares its name.

Komodo Dragon would be too easy.

@Joshhowell94 and @Predator678 both of you are pretty close (and that should do for today's clue aswell)

@Westley It has no legs.

Hmmmm with knowing the fact that you like Ratsnakes, I guess one can assume that it's some type of ratsnake ;)

That's not a question, simply a statement/thought, haha.

@Joshhowell94, You got it.

The Indonesian rat snake or Timor rat snake - Coelognathus subradiatus subradiatus

These are pretty variable little guys, pity we don't see them in the trade here.

Here is a reptile that I came across while reading a post on another forum. I had never heard of this reptile so I think its going to be pretty hard.

I have legs, but not the type you might think.

Good luck guys

I am going to have a go and say the Mexican mole lizard. Don't know its scientific name. I read about them a few weeks back also on another forum.
Every good story seems to begin with a snake.
