Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
SKINK (Mabuya sps)... could be a common grass skink but it wasn't that large sized.
Please join and add to the mission .. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7970...
No biggie :) even i am not sure, but i find it nice opportunity to explore western ghats... but if anyone of ur colleages interested here is the linkhttp://www.facebook.com/events/308993125...
Chime... really not possible... I go to hills on weekly off from my work...
@ Ashish, will you be joining the Gerry martin project snake captures in the western ghats flanking Goa ? i saw in facebook.
Thanks Mark... I love to wander on Western ghat hills... everything of Web of life seen here.. My entire collection is spotted here (except some flowers and butterflied spotted in Delhi)
Ashish you are a lucky man - one of my greatest wishes is to explore in the Western ghats. Maybe if I win the lottery....
Mark...If you check carefully This is Reddish than others find in Western ghats. Thisnis separate South Indian Sub specie. I do not find such Reddish Skink here in Maharashtra.
Typical India ! It looks very much like our skinks but lovely bright colours. Wonderful.
Thank you Ashish for the id. Could be a Juvenile... normally E.carinata are big sized skinks. :) I am always confused between E.carinata, macularia, and bibronii..
Wow, fantastic skink
