Description

Skinks look roughly like true lizards, but most species have no pronounced neck and sport relatively small legs. Several genera (e.g., Typhlosaurus) have no limbs at all, others, such as Neoseps, have only reduced limbs. Often, their way of moving resembles that of snakes more than that of other lizards. Skinks usually have long, tapering tails that can be shed and regenerated. Classification Genus Typhlosaurus Typhlosaurus aurantiacus Typhlosaurus braini Typhlosaurus caecus Typhlosaurus cregoi Typhlosaurus gariepensis Typhlosaurus lineatus Typhlosaurus lomii Typhlosaurus meyeri Typhlosaurus vermis Categories: Skinks ... Binomial name Neoseps reynoldsi Stejneger 1910 There is only one species known of the genus Neoseps, the Neoseps reynoldsi, commonly known as the (Florida) Sand Skink. ...

In biology, regeneration is an organisms ability to replace body parts. ...


Most skinks are medium sized with a length from the snout to the vent of up to 12 cm, although there are a few that grow to larger sizes, such as the Corucia, which can reach 35 cm from snout to vent. A centimetre (American spelling centimeter, symbol cm) is a unit of length that is equal to one hundredth of a metre, the current SI base unit of length. ... Classification Genus Corucia Corucia zebrata Categories: Skinks ...


Diet

Skinks are generally carnivorous and largely eat insects, including crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, and caterpillars. They also eat spiders, earthworms, snails, slugs, isopods, other lizards, and small rodents. Some species, particularly those favored as home pets, have a more varied diet and can be maintained on a regimen of roughly 60% vegetables/leaves/fruit and 40% meat and meat products (cat or dog food).[1] Orders Subclass Apterygota Archaeognatha (bristletails) Thysanura (silverfish) Subclass Pterygota Infraclass Paleoptera (Probably paraphyletic) Ephemeroptera (mayflies) Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies) Infraclass Neoptera Superorder Exopterygota Grylloblattodea (ice-crawlers) Mantophasmatodea (gladiators) Plecoptera (stoneflies) Embioptera (webspinners) Zoraptera (angel insects) Dermaptera (earwigs) Orthoptera (grasshoppers, etc) Phasmatodea (stick insects) Blattodea (cockroaches) Isoptera (termites) Mantodea (mantids) Psocoptera...

Habitat

Skinks are found in a variety of habitats worldwide. Some species are endangered. The Siberian Tiger is a subspecies of tiger that are critically endangered. ...


Many species are good burrowers. There are more terrestrial or fossorial (burying) species than arboreal (tree-climbing) or aquatic species. Some are "sand swimmers", especially the desert species, such as the Mole skink in Florida. Most skinks are diurnal, so they are active during the day. They like to crawl out on rocks or logs to bask (soak up heat from the sun) during the day and they eat green things too. Binomial name Baird, 1859 Mole Skinks (Eumeces egregius) are small lizards living in the Southeastern United States. ... This article is about the U.S. State of Florida. ... A diurnal animal (dī-ŭrnəl) is an animal that is active during the daytime and sleeps during the night. ...


Breeding

During the breeding season, some types of skink will exhibit orange or red markings to indicate sexual maturity. About 55% of the skinks are oviparous, that is, they lay eggs in small clutches. The other 45% are ovoviviparous, giving birth to living offspring. Ovoviviparous animals develop within eggs that remain within the mothers body up until they hatch or are about to hatch. ...


Predators

Raccoons, foxes, possums, snakes, cats, dogs, hawks and kookaburras all prey on skinks. For the river, see Raccoon River. ... This article is about the animal. ...

Genera

Many large genera, Mabuya for example, are still insufficiently studied, and systematics is at times controversial, see e.g. the taxonomy of the Western Skink (Eumeces skiltonianus). Mabuya is a genus of long-tailed skinks, found through Southeast Asia, Africa, and The Americas. ... Binomial name Eumeces skiltonianus (Baird and Girard, 1852) The Western Skink (Eumeces skiltonianus) is a small smooth-scaled lizard with relatively small limbs, measuring about 5 to 8 cm (2 to 3 inches) from snout to vent. ...

Skinks are the most diverse group of lizards.
Most skinks are medium sized with a maximum length from the snout to the vent of some 12 cm, although there are a few that grow to larger sizes, such as the Corucia, which can reach 35 cm from snout to vent.
Skinks are generally carnivorous; many feed on smaller invertebrates.
