Help with the care of the Tasmanian Spotted Skink

I am hoping to get a Spotted Skink (Carinascincus Ocellatus) and I was wondering if anyone knew how to care for them. Information on tank size, diet, habitat and temperatures would help a lot!

Photos would be helpful,

I have been checking my "A Guide to Australian Skinks in Captivity" (Dr.D Brown) and can't find a mention of Tassy Spotted Skinks in it this book.

Are you sure of the species ?

Try contacting the Tasmanian Herpetological Soc at rrinctas@yahoo.com.au

Is this it ? http://tasbushblog.blogspot.com.au/2008 ... latus.html

If it's not a native Australian species - and you are in Tasmania , forget about getting any as they are strickly prohibited imports in Australia and Tasmania.

The one in your link is right- I haven't got one, but would like to get one.

I'll contact the Tassie Herp Society- thanks!
