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.
