Red-Eyed Crocodile Skink (Tribolonotus gracilis)

Red-Eyed Crocodile Skink (Tribolonotus gracilis)
http://www.thefeaturedcreature.com

This adorable reptilian is found in the tropical forests of New Guinea. They are a crepuscular species, meaning they are active at dawn and dusk- looking for food, water, a mate, etc.

These, like geckos, are vocal animals, especially when in distress…and may even “play dead” when startled.

Red-eyed crocodile skinks have been kept in captivity since 1994, and thus can be bought as pets through various online shops. Adults can reach lengths of 8-10 in (males are usually larger than females). http://www.vmsherp.com/CarePages/CareTribs.htm

If you plan to have these lizards as pets, be certain that you meet all of the requirements stated on the “care sheet” provided during your purchase in order for your friend to live a happy, healthy life.

New species are found every. single. day. If this creature exists here today, imagine what else is out there! Help conserve these critters and share these great wildlife discoveries with family and friends. Everyone deserves to learn about the beauty Mother Earth holds.
