Eastern Water-Skink

Eulamprus quoyii


The Eastern Water-Skink is a medium sized skink with shiny scales on body, they can grow up to 30cm long.


The Eastern Water-Skink is usually found close to or on the shore of slow flowing creeks and estuaries, hence its name. Although, the Eastern Water-Skink is not restricted to areas near freshwater, it is frequently found in somewhat dry environments, including sandstone outcroppings and savanna.


It seemed to have a bronze sheen to it's scales.
