Created this basic chart show casing the three defined species of Egg Eaters across South Africa, thought I'd share.

Very cool, medici has to be my favourite even though I've never even seen one in person.

Lekker pics man. Now you just need to get in your car and drive over the entire country coz I understand that D. scabra will be split into something like 6 different species.

Come to think if it, the medici reminds me quite a lot of the Namaqualand specimen, even down to the bug-eyed characteristics.
