Lovely little guy, maybe 10 centimetres (4 inches) long… just parked himself for a rest. What could I do but snap away?

  1. Oh, how cool Veronica! Do you know what species he is?

    • Thanks… I have tried looking him up – he really has quite distinctive markings with that tail – but whenever I think I found him, it turns out to be an endangered skink on a remote island. So I would have to go with him being a garden variety West Auckland skink. He looks much more menacing in the photo than he does in real life – mostly due to size, I suspect.
