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..
