Charming chap, or chapess. So much prettier than a naked mole rat, a star mole, or other near-surface dwellers. Thanks for the encounter, and the splendid photos. Skink *and* swim. Hope the camels were as engaging. Glad your journey went well.

Sand fish are true wild animals that cannot breed in captivity. I recently read a NASA article on the study of the sand fish and how it moves through the different density's of sand. They intend to apply their findings on burrowing robots...For Mars I assume!

A number of different robotics labs are already working on this - see the linked posts.
