This little guy giving me the eye is an Australian Wall, or Fence Skink – Crytoblepharus buchananii, sometimes called a sun lizard. I caught him sunning himself on the small wall that separates my place from my neighbour’s in deep, dark suburbia, proving the name to be particularly apt.
I more often see him running up and down my corrugated cement fence hunting insects or just taking in the rays. 😎
Besides being kinda cute (he’s only around 10 cm (4 in) from tip to tail) he’s good for the garden, eating all kinds of nasty bugs.
