5 Lined Skink posing

I think I have a new friend. It’s been on the front deck a couple of times now. He’s about 2” longer than the other one, and even though this one posed for a few pictures, I still like the photo of the one on the log under the leaves, in a previous post.skink2 001cs

It likes kind of like a Mae West pose, doesn’t it?

I had to play with this one….”How do you like my snake look?” or ..I suppose it could be …hands on his hips…wondering what I’m looking at.skink2 004cs

We were having a “sun-shower”…you can see the drops of water on his back. It wouldn’t come out of the shadow enough for me to get the beautiful blue of his tail, but I’ll keep trying.


  1. Skink are fascinating. I've never seen lizards pose their arms and legs like that. I like the pretty blue tail color too.

  2. He is a cutie...does have an attitude pose...
    We also have them in the back yard. I will see if I can get a photo!
    I am so enjoying getting to know you and your wildlife.

  3. Cute narrative. Good photos too.

  4. Lovely Lizard Images,the skin shine looks all new. Are they young Skinks

  5. I believe he is young, but they always shine like that. In an older post I have a closer shot of one..I like the "braided leather" look of their skin. One of these days I'll get the pretty blue of his tail. Thanks for stopping in.

  6. Hi Carol, Mr. Skink loves that sunshine--especially the feel of the heat on his belly from the deck....

    Love the snake look and of course, the Mae West look.



Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
