Sneaky skink

Slow and steady wins the shot!

“I very slowly stalked this little guy, a south-eastern morethia (Morethia boulengeri), for a long time so that I could get very close to take this shot” said Arlie.

South-eastern morethia grow to be about 9 - 12 cm long and are part of the Skink family. They are a insectivorous species, like the majority of skinks, and eats predominately arthropod species and snails, making them handy garden friends.
