You could always post this on our sister site, iSpot South Africa, they have local specialists in South African lizards.

Ooops! I see you have already added it to the South African site and the Masked Marvel beat them to an identification!

I suggest you put an identification of Armadillo girdled lizard on the SA site and get some reputation points there.

not 'real' location

It might be worth adding a tag that groups these observations from captive scenarios so that we can exclude them from red list assessments and other scientific applications, without having to check each time data is requested?

My original identification

My original identification was in part based on the location and the giant girdled lizard doesn't occur here as far as I can tell. I'll agree to the second id.

Habitat = Zoos & Aquaria

In this case the correct habitat is "Zoos & Aquaria" which solves this problem to everyone's satisfaction.

Now that this observation is in the southern African community, please change the habitat.
