Description

I believe this is a Gilbert skink, based on there being no stripes on the sides of the tail. I did flip other western skinks at this location so not 100% sure, can anyone confirm?

Saw a Gilbert's skink, which stood out among the horde of western fence lizards active that morning. A remarkably pale body with a bright pinkish head. Unfortunately it scurried away before I got a photo.
