Schnieder's Skink

I just got a schnieder's skink and am looking for more info on their care. He is very sweet and loves to crawl around on me. He will even eat out of my hand. What are some good sites to check out? Any other info on their care would be great to. I have the bedding and heat setup, so that parts good, im just looking to find out more. One main question I have is how often should I feed him? I have been feeding him crickets. I tried giving him some mealworms but he doesn't like them.

Hey I was told to feed mine two crickets every other day and thats what she ate while she was in the rep shop but they were also in the smallest tanks now that i have them in a 20+ gallon tank they seem to have much more of an appetite I still only feed them every other day. The one thing you should know is that they do not need to have water put out for them. They only really drink when they are shedding or breeding they get enough water from the crickets and fruits and veggies. I keep a large dish of water in my tank because my male likes to splash around in it.
My best advice for you as a new owner to skinks is do what I do hit the library or google schneiders skinks and read up as much as you can. Since your skinks will have their own personalities you can't follow what you read you have to spend time with them and watch and see what they like. Enjoy!
