Carlia vivax (De Vis, 1884)
This 8 cm skink is common along the north coast and adjacent areas of NSW, and along the coast and near coastal parts of Queensland. This skink is highly variable in colour, even within a given population, or offspring from a single clutch of eggs.
This small skink occurs in a variety of habitats, where it is diurnal and insectivorous. Little is known of the biology of this species, although on February 22nd 1987 the author found a pair of these skinks mating under a log at Hervey Bay Queensland. When eggs are laid by this species is not known.
The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
