One of my favorite skinks, I love those. Good luck and I hope you get fertile eggs, don't see too many captive breedings.

Thanks Kelli!!

I like them too, they are awesome animals. I have had this pair about a year now, I was planning on letting the babies go in my flower beds. But there are just way too many stray cats around here. There are not too many in our area, and it is pretty rare to find them. I think the cats just about killed most of them here. Years ago I would find several while herping, but they are getting rare to find, even in the woods.

Ever go raking?

I've got a mixed opinion of it and wouldn't suggest it to many people, but you are obviously one who'd be able to do it appropriately and with the kind of approach needed to do it responsibly.

I have not, I have dug in the leaves, but never used a rake. We find a good many little brown skinks and salamanders like that.

Takes a very very light touch to do it safely anyway; not to say you couldn't but that you might find it to be more trouble than it's worth. I've seen a couple people who didn't quite grasp what they were doing start tearing through leaf detritus like they were attempting lawn care- destroying all shape and texture of the soil beneath the leaves as they went and seemingly oblivious to the notion that the ground cover should be put back in the closest possible manner to the way it was found. You, as an individual, have got enough of a grasp of the idea of microhabitat to get away with it but it's definitely not for everyone and shouldn't be attempted by most.

Yea, can understand that and see how people can not leave the woods like they found them. I have even built debris piles for the reptiles here, so that they can have a place to go in case of danger. It is very rare that I collect anything to keep; most of what I take is the pictures.
