Five-Lined Skink

Adult females actually have brighter colors than males (for once the girl animal gets the better outfit!) Males have bright orange heads during mating season and we saw this one a few weeks ago, so I’m hoping this is his new girlfriend!

Usually they are way more shy than this but she was up for the photoshoot!

Great colors!

      Apologies but I thought I’d try and ‘reply’ to a comment I made ages ago and see if i can get this message through that way. Please can you check your spam folder. Akismet are dumping genuine comments into spam following an update of some sort. Even posts from people who have been frequent comment makers on a blog are being classed as spam. It is very frustrating.

      Cheers
