Hello, everyone. I’m new here. Recently I’ve been considering getting a Peter’s Banded Skink. Does anyone have any care advice such as what the best insect is for them? Any and all help is appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Look like a nice skink to have as a pet. Not legal here in Australia.

Found this that might give you a little guidance https://reptilerapture.net/peters-bande ... sheet.html , I'd be thoroughly researching the species to make sure you have a good understanding of it's husbandry and requirements BEFORE BUYING.

Don’t worry, I will definitely do lots of research. I’ve actually be researching for a while now. I know that they are not widely available captive bred, so first I would try my hardest to get one captive bred. I also may try to produce a few babies from them, so they are more widely available. Of course, I would wait a while first! :D

I have seen them in the pet trade from time to time, but do not know of any captive breeding of this species in the US.
