Description

Everywhere, from highly disturbed places to miombo woodland, near houses and at Tete city. Apparently not ground deweling, preferring rocks, trunks and trees.
Thanks to Werner Conradie.

Two photos. A male and a female.

My idea is that it could be Trachylepis striata or T. wahlbergii

Description

Saw about 6 of these. Caught a small one and got a nice look at it before letting it go on my sons shirt where it scurried off at the speed of light. For a tiny thing it had quite a good grip on my finger with its bite. Harmless of course but impressive for as tiny as they are.

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.
