We have hundreds of little Skinks scuttling about our place but recently I decided to photograph some differences. Most have copper coloured heads with grey/black pattered bodies. Some however have stripes, yellow tails or copper coloured tails. Most have white under bellies but some of the shinier, slimmer type have yellow under bellies.
I discovered that when you turn them over to check the colour of their bellies they lie quite still but the instant you turn them back over they’re off!
