Skink sp., Vaucluse, Sydney




This tiny skink was scuttling about our garage floor this morning. It was about 3-4cm long. Despite studying A Comlete Guide to Reptiles of Australia (by Steve Wilson and Gerry Swan) back to back I haven't managed to make a positive ID yet. I'm off to the reptile forums so, for heaven's sake, stay tuned.

UPDATE: My new buddies at aussiepythons.com say it's a young Lampropholis delicata. That's a Garden Skink to you and me.
