Pink Tongue Skink Information

Hello -

I am looking for a good source of information regarding the care of pink tongue skinks. I have been looking online for some time. However, it seems that every website has differing opinions as to the proper care of these guys. For example: some websites recommend group cages while others recommend single living conditions; similarly some recommend UV some recommend no UV. There is not a consistent place to find the information regarding this species. I know some on the forums keep/breed these species. So I thought that is wold be a good place to start the discussion of proper care for these skinks so the information is out there.

Thanks,

Kyle

I keep mine in groups of 4 no UVB and feed greens, snails , dog food and really ripe fruit. The are opportunistic feeders so I feed them stuff that they would find in the wild. I give them places to hide and climb a little. Temps in basking are about 85 and cooler near the bottom. I use coco fiber as a substrate.

They tend to be stimulated to eat by misting and like a 85 or so basking spot. Seems to work great for me. The are very social in the group. They hang out and sleep together.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Ryan,

One question regarding tanks. What do you keep yours in? I'm looking into getting a small group (5 ish) but want to make sure I actually understand the cage requirements etc before getting them.

I like taller cages as they like to climb. I keep 4 of them in 18x18x24.
