Finally it is cool and raining! :ohyes: As Colin or Ruth or any other NSW person will tell you (or anywhere in Aus actually), it’s been a hot, dry Autumn and the drought’s pretty bad. Maybe now everyone will be able to go to sleep. Ralphie and Santos are trying, but it’s just been too warm. So these just might be the last pics for a while. Jubby is as active as always. These were all taken in the last couple of weeks.


Smiley man #!. Goes to show how big his head is, that you can't see his body at all
Image

Camera. Out of face. Now
Image

Gives a good idea why we call him spade-head!
Image

A bit out of focus but that's because I just stuck the camera down in front of his face
Image

Ralphie's shedding so there's bits hanging off him and he's not too colourful
Image

Hunting yummies in the grass
Image

You can do it, Ralphie! Lift that watering can!
Image

Aww, better luck next time!
Image

No worries, we still love you mate!
Image

Maybe not the world's greatest skink, but surely in the Top 10 for most photogenic! :love:
Image

In one end......
Image

..... And out the other
Image

This is the 'I'd like to come out now, please Mum' position. Or the 'I'm king of the world, woooooooo'
Image

Smiley man #2
Image

Can’t separate these two. Ralphie loves any kind of company
Image

In Aus, we have these lollipops called Chupa Chups. We've renamed them Juba Chups. Here he's enjoying one with Jim, our skinksitter when we go on holidays
Image


This is the current diet. They’re some kind of centipede that we've never seen before, but they're in abundance and certainly enjoyed by all. Still no snails to be found but maybe after today’s rain, finger’s crossed.
Image

As a sidenote, last week we found these huge cockroach things when we pulled apart some old wine barrel plant holders that were rotted and they went down a treat with the kids. Yummy in their tummies. I then looked them up on the net and found that they are giant burrowing cockroaches and they go for $40-50 each as pets. So that’s their birthday and Christmas presents all rolled into one. Like taking High Tea at Harrods or lunch at the Ivy.

Have a great weekend! I’m going to go put my gumboots on and play in the rain :lol:

:hithere: Hey Lisa's kids!!

"Chupa Chups," are a mexican lolli, I believe. "Chupa," means "suck," in spanish, so... :noknow: We have them here too.

I sure love the "face down in the grass," looking for goodies thing. It's one of my favorites.

Lisa, you'll be happy to know, Rollie creeped out this prissy girl at the coffee shop while in the grass; he had his face in the grass, she thought he was gross anyway, then he came up with about six legs all wriggling from a huge spider he ate... :lol: She turned green... :hurl: :hehe: :rofl:

Thankyou, friend! Once again you have placed strain on my brain capacity by feeding it information I did not know :bow1:
Is ok but, it just pushed something useless out of there.
Glad he freaked the prissy lassy, did he have spider juice running down his face? :rofl: And better yet, the legs were still twitching. Wicked when that happens!! (ooops, shhhh..... Renee might read this! :shh:)
I thought I'd discovered a new race of spider, but it turned out it was this bug that was walking along with half a huntsman in it's mouth. I think I need glasses :oops:

Yes Rich, Ralphie's a biggun. He (although I think he's a she) was a year old at the end of March and I just measured him at nearly 21 inches. Conor calls him the Michelin Man, which I think is a bit unfair, but then he reckons my shingle looks like a pile of poo. He's only jealous because the lizards get more kisses and lovin than he does :hehe:
Jubby at over three years old is around 50cm, so Ralphie is the whopper of the family. Colin Hamilton breeds em big!

No, no spider juice. He managed to get the arse-end of the spider just right and the legs were the last to go down! :drool: Mmmmm! :)

mmm, stop it! you're making me hungry here!

Sure beats last Friday's poo talk :rofl: Speaking of which (can't help myself!) they're all sloppy jalopies tonight because it rained today. Good excuse to leave them till tomorrow to pick up. ....um, Conor ... I say Conor, I've got a job for you .... :hehe:

P.S. RYO videos? No go Flo-Jo, I'm on dial up. Pics and dialogue only or else you'll get a big fat F and then the whip'll come out. Mind me now, boy :evil:

One of the reasons I fel in love with this site and Skinkers in general is.....JUBBY!!!! He never lets me down and his smile makes my whole day!!!! Thanks for the shots.....Is it time for him to hibernate already? Seems like he was just waking up.....Man how time flies!!!! Ralphie as usual looking beautiful even in shed and Santos, all I can say is what a speciman. Where are the videos on utube? I cannot find them...Are they on a different thread?????? Love to all three babies and tell Jubby that his honorary Aunty Marilee will be there in September when he wakes up to give him all the hugs and kisses he can handle!!!!!

Oh, nooo...sorry....

We deleted a bunch of pictures from the cache thinking it had overloaded (reason why we thought picture service quit working).
