Cunningham’s Skink

Cunningham’s Skink, Egernia cunninghami, is a large skink native to southeastern Australia that is capable of growing up to 12 inches in length and is often confused with blue-tongued lizards. It prefers rocky outcrops in woodland.

Cunningham’s Skink has distinctive keel on each scale, which gives them a slightly spiny appearance. This species is a diurnal omnivore. Like other reptiles it gives birth to live young, usually six or more in a litter.
