GRASS SKINK Lampropholis guichenoti (Dumeril and Bibron, 1839)
Common throughout the coast, ranges and slopes of South Eastern Australia, this 9 cm lizard is found in all types of habitat, and is also common in suburban gardens.
The Grass Skink is also the dominant small skink in many areas cleared for farming and other human activities. This insectivorous lizard lays 2-5 eggs in spring which hatch in summer. Hatchlings measure about 2.5 cm.
Sometimes large numbers of females lay eggs in one communal site. More than two hundred eggs have been recorded from one such site.
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.
