Five-Lined Skinks are small reptiles native to the Mouse Territories.
Appearance and CharacteristicsEdit
- This small reptile grows up to about two and a half mouse-lengths. It’s mainly an insectivore, eating crickets, grasshoppers, spiders and sometimes snails. It can dig rapidly and efficiently, so skinks have been known to raid mouse beetle and cricket farms when they’re hungry.
- They prefer to sun themselves on rocks in the morning before hunting. They winter in deep burrows. Their tails can detach and act as a decoy to help them escape a sticky situation.
