Description

While Kruger boasts one of the healthiest populations of white Rhino's in the world, increased poaching is reaching crisis levels. At the time of this sighting colleagues in a SanParks helicopter had their research delayed as the pilot had to rush off to storm a rhino poaching camp in the south east part of the park.

Description

This species is the common 'rainbow skink' from Kruger. Unfortunately the taxonomy seems to be in flux. Also, there's some confusion because the species is so variable looking across life-stages. Here, I've observed an adult male.
