Description

Its head was stuck in an old leaf folded up with spider web, which was why it was out in the middle of the path when we found it. I removed its hat (which was well stuck on) and it scuttled away.

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.
