The local church in Albany inherited this King Skink some time ago, it lives in the garden at the side of the main building, and during the day he hangs out under the culvert drain lid by the side door, and comes out when safe. He was ready for flight but didn’t rush off, he seems quite used to human interaction. He wasn’t keen to go anyway as he was enjoying the summer sun. I love the markings. The photo doesn’t show how glossy his skin is, it really gleamed in the light. He watched me closely, and seemed happy to be the center of attention, when I passed by later he was still there.
