Fire Skink

Fire Skink

Fire Skinks are named for their beautifully-colored patterns. These skinks are smooth-scaled lizards that are active and alert most during the daytime. They are docile and can be skittish at first, but they are easy to tame and handle. Keep them in a 20-gallon terrarium with no more than one other skink and provide low climbing and hiding places. The more comfortable they feel in their habitat, the more active and adventurous they will be!
