"Gravid" five lined skink?

Postby Roarschak11 » Fri May 30, 2014 1:01 pm

Hello! I have a female five lined skink (commonly referred to as blue tailed skink) and it is currently their breeding season and I'm thinking she might have some slugs?? Is that even possible? She's been looking pretty chubby so I've been cutting down her food, but she is still a little rounder then I've ever seen! Is there a possibility she could have eggs? Is there any cases of pathogenesis in these guys?

Hello Roarschak11! :)

I cannot say whether or not she is gravid, but I do know this girl is gravid.. so I leave you with this girl I found today for comparison. :) (If picture does not show up, please let me know)
