SILVER SKINK Eulamprus tenuis (Gray, 1831)
Attaining 15 to 20 cm this lizard occurs along the coast and ranges of NSW and Queensland. Although found in a variety of habitats, this lizard is usually found in wet sclerophyll forest and rainforest habitats.
The Silver Skink is common in built up areas derived from these habitats, where it inhabits stone walls and lives in crevices in the walls of old houses. It is particularly common in Sydney's' 'lower north shore' area. In its' natural habitat this arboreal lizard is usually found climbing rock outcrops and trees where it finds its' insect food. Assumed to be live-bearing, the breeding biology of this lizard is little known.
