I have looked up hundreds of skink species, and I just can't seem to find him. Has that plated lizard look, but also a skink look to him.. and it will bother me until someone finds out.

Zonosaurus quadrilineatus? Or commonly called the four lined plated lizard. If you can't figure out why it's called this, it is due to the 4 lines running down its back :wink:
