A Skink And Moulting Lizards


Guess who strayed into the house one sunny morning? A baby skink! If it hadn't come in I'd never have managed to take a photo like this one. Anyway after about ten shots I held out a newspaper for this baby to climb on. Then I took it outside where it disappeared amidst my plants!

 My garden lizards are going through their rite of passage...moulting! I found one on the branch of my mango tree where it certainly didn't want its privacy invaded. I understood.:)

And this one has shed more skin than the first one. Lizards shed skin in scraps often starting by a split down the back.

Thank you for bringing the skink to the garden. For one moment I thought you were to whack it with the newspaper. I should know you better.

The last one is very pretty; gold and silver. Must be priceless!!!

Marvelous captures! And what a cute little guy he is! I, too, love the last one! Hope you have a great week!

Great shots. They are adorable although I might get nervous if they wandered in my house unexpectedly.

If you hadn't told me this lizard is molting, I would have thought is has a huge stripe around it!

Judy Royal Glenn said...

Neat how you captured him on that pole!

Wendy said...

Strange the things that animals do. I never thought about lizards molting!
That baby skink is cute!

So many lizard shots. I didn't know garden lizards molted, least of all how.

The last one used to be so common in these parts, but we hardly see them now.That is the price of urbanisation and pollution:(
