LEONHARD'S SKINK Ctenotus leonhardii (Sternfeld, 1919)
Common in drier habitats throughout Australia, this 11 cm skink is usually found active during the day foraging, or under ground cover such as fallen logs and tree bark.
An insectivorous species, it appears to be commonly attacked by predators, as many specimens caught in the wild have regenerated tails.
An egg layer, hatchlings measure about 2-3 cm.
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.
