WEASEL SKINK Lampropholis mustelina (O'Shaughnessy, 1874)
The 15cm Weasel Skink lives in the moister parts of the coast and ranges of NSW and Victoria. Although a wet forest inhabitant this lizard will move into other adjoining habitats, although it tends to remain in shady places.
It is common in suburban gardens of Sydney and Melbourne. This lizard is not as fast moving as most other small skinks.
An insectivorous, diurnal lizard, 2-5 eggs are laid in warm moist places, sometimes communally, in spring which hatch about 75 days later. It has been recorded that some specimens deposit their eggs in the same site every year.
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.
