Animal Friend of the Week:Cunningham’s Skink

Wellington 1 1312@0,1x

Time to showcase a reptile this week for my animal friends challenge.  Going through the reptiles on Wellington Zoo’s website I realised that I must go back again as I missed so many.  Many of them were incognito – I never saw them, all I saw or so it seemed was empty glass cages.

This is Spitfire, a female Cunningham’s Skink. She was poking her face out to see who was around.

IUCN: Least concern

The Cunningham’s Skink is a large lizard native to southeastern Australia, and is often confused with its lookalike Blue-Tongued cousins.

They live in groups and give birth to litters of live young instead of laying eggs.

And thanks to Sonya for taking part last week.  She was lucky enough to catch a seal in the wild.

I want to showcase our animal kingdom.  It runs from Tuesday New Zealand time and is weekly.  You can join in anytime at all over the week.  You can post your furry friends (babies), wild animals, birds, insects and butterflies.  Even reptiles are welcome.

Just use this logo and link back to this blog.

I look forward to seeing all the different animals around the world

Thanks for visiting.
