Peek-a-boo Skink

Skinks are lizards. The kinds around here (NC, US) are colorful.  I often see them in shiny blue color or in orange color.  They are fast and seem to be shy. They will scurry away quickly when they see you. I think they are kind of cute.  I found this one a bit more brave or was curious of me. I had a little chance to take pictures of it. This was a rare case for me.

        🙂 I saw a Red Salamander the other day first time in many many years seeing a critter like that no lizards are cool if I go this way and they go THAT WAY 🙂

    Very cute. Almost like he/she is coming out to scan you 🙂

      That must be the reason that he/she did not run away right away 🙂

    It’s beautiful and my favorite color is orange ! I had never seen orange lizards, just i saw some greens and gray in France. But, it’s difficult to have seen all the animals ! Thanks for this nice picture !

      I am glad you like the orange color lizards. You are right. Different places have different kinds. I do not recall seeing these color in Fl. US. as well. They are in green or gray there too.

      Thank you.

    You captured this with so much detail…at first I jumped when I opened the photo larger, I thought it was a snake at first☺

    It has cut eyes, looking you curiously. I’ve never seen such a colorful lizard in Japan, except for a zoo or somewhere. Marvelous shot!!

      I think it is a curious little creature. This perhaps thought it was safe inside the hollow to take a long peek 🙂

    Such a beautiful little creature! Congrats on the shot, it is brilliant.

      Thank you. I was not able to find one around for me to capture again ever since.
