Description

Found two of these while clearing an area of overgrown suburban backyard - mostly Tradescantia with lots of wood and other debris under it, beneath a tall mixed canopy of natives and exotics. Seemed good habitat that could potentially have held a lot more, but nice to know the species is still holding on so close to central Auckland.

Description from Wikipedia

Skinks are lizards belonging to the family Scincidae. Together with several other lizard families, including Lacertidae (the "true" or wall lizards), they comprise the superfamily or infraorder Scincomorpha. With more than 1500 described species, the Scincidae are the most diverse family of lizards.
