He sure is an interesting critter, Herman. So how do you pronounce his name?

Sker ve certainly describes his skin condition............... Although Lizard thingy is a very good English translation, particularly since the only time we are likely to come across one of these is Courtesy of our South African friends, in a zoo or on our travels. I like his environment.

A great shot of this lizard thingy, Herman. The relatively low contrast brings out the subtle colouring.

Skurwe is 'rough'. Jantjie is probably gecko or lizard. Best I can do for you, Herman. Well captured critter.

What an unusual looking creature Herman, he looks like a cross between a lizard and a toad. He blends in so well with his surroundings you did well to spot him!

Pronunciation is as you see it only with a warm southern drawl.
Skurf is mangy, scruffy and Jan is simply John. Scruffy little John.
And it is a fantastic capture!!!
