Yep, these guys have it

remember : > genus, species, subspecies, these are Eumeces obsoletus ( Great Plains Skinks ) and one has definite lost a tail at one time as they do at random. Capable of getting to 12-13 inches and one of the most abundant lizards of Kansas of size next to the collared lizard of Kansas. They CAN be a great pet given very large cage area but the keeping of more than one in a confined area can result in tail loss. Sppeavy and myself can or has found this species in HUGE numbers in central Flint Hills Kansas. Have we found them to be aggressive little bergers ? Definitely ! LOL !
