Fire Skinks

Postby se_exotics » Wed Oct 15, 2014 4:00 pm

I was recently able to purchase four wild caught Fire Skinks between two of my local Petcos. This is a species I've been wanting for years and really enjoy having them. Here's some photos. Since none of them have been fighting I don't know which are males yet but I'm assuming that I have at least two males in there right now and the extras will be sold. I doubt I'm lucky enough to have ended up with a 1.3 group. They're eating crickets, wax worms, and meal worms and are able to be handled after working with them daily.

Amazing skinks! I would love to add a few with mine and have a little colony, it is a shame they are so hard to sex.

I read an article in the latest Reptiles Magazine on them! They were mentioned as the next popular lizard in the hobby. Nice group!

I read it to, it is a very nice little article! Very informative.
