3) This forum is for advanced discussions, such as scientific, medical, reproductive, pathological, environmental, etc.
4) PROOF, FACT, and BACK IT UP are three things to keep in mind when posting.
5) Comments need to add to the discussion. “Good job”, “I agree”, or “Nice skink” etc, do not add to the discussion and are not allowed here. If stating an opinion, back it up with what experiences have led to that opinion.

What I have heard is about 15" Richard. I am too scattered to measure my young skinks when they breed for the first time, but 15" - 16" seems about right. PM me if you want to talk more about it. I have learned a few things that I would rather not discuss publicly. 8)
