Garden Skinks

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!

Although it might seem from my posts that a Koala is always here that’s not so. I have no idea how extensive their range is, I’m sure that depends on the density of the Eucalypts they eat but they usually reappear here every few weeks.

It’s been a cold month so most things are hiding away hoping Spring will be here soon.
