Poor skinks

Written by Dr. Dolittle on October 15, 2009 – 7:27 am -


With 4 outside cats patrolling the immediate territory, skinks have a tough time keeping their tails on in this neighborhood. This little guy appears ot have dodged the bullet so far. When I find skinks I pick them up and move them into the trees by the water spring. Hopefully their chances of survival will be better there, away from the cats.

    The cats thinned (and wiped out?) the green anole population, so I’m glad the skinks are getting a fighting chance. This juvenile five-lined skink will appreciate the opportunity to grow old enough to lose the blue tail, and if it’s lucky, it’ll live long enough to gain a red face.
