Fat Skink Found

Fat Skink Found

Postby Primogen » Sat Oct 12, 2013 11:47 am

So I was busy cleaning my snake room today and came across this very fat Striped Skink.


I have a huge colony of these guys living in the rock garden around my pool I would say at least around 10 - 20 individuals.
Normaly they bolt at any movement but this was either too fat to move or gravid and just allowed me to pick it up.
Also has a little bit of stuck shed on its tail you can see the kink caused by it.
