Post Pictures of Your Skinks: Part II

Postby Dakota » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:27 pm

This is a continuation of the original thread; the original thread has many pages, so we thought it would be sensible to just do a part II.

Please view the original thread here

There has been many wonderful contributions, so we encourage you to take a look through the original thread.

You can post pictures of your skinks on this thread. Let's see some of your beautiful skinks here! :)

Awesome skinks, Nick! I wouldn't mind having a Blotch or two. :)

I know I said I would not pay attention, but it kinda hard not to when it is getting rather obvious! Here is Xaunder from a few minutes ago. She is going on 84 days now.

And no, her stomach has no food in it. Feeding day is tomorrow.

I wish occi were more common in the US. They look spectacular.

Cute photo splashy07. I love checking on them at night sleeping, with their stretched out legs; it is so cute!

They never stop being cute without even knowing they are! I'm surprised my phone hasn't exploded with all the pictures I am constantly taking!

Fantastic shot! I wish you lived close by, you could photograph all of my meraukes. What are you using for a camera?

Van is gorgeous!

Would love to photograph your Meraukes! Maybe hijack one of your babies, too! :whistle: :drool:

The camera I use solely is a Nikon D3200. Been using it for a few years, and I have gotten some awesome photographs out of it.

On the 19th of November this girl gave birth to 19 babies. Her weight went from 864g to 480g. One of her babies weighed in this morning. It's getting along ok I think.
