Hi All,

Just wanted to confirm the little critter below as Duberria lutrix (Common Slug Eater).

Neighbor brought him to be yesterday, found below an pile of grass clippings.

Planning to release in an veld nearby.

Thanks in advance peeps :D

Confirmed! A very pretty one too.
The kiss originated when the first male reptile licked the first female reptile, implying in a subtle, complimentary way that she was as succulent as the small reptile he had for dinner the night before.
