Range and Habitat: Five-lined skinks range throughout Georgia and South Carolina and are equally at home on the ground and in trees. Five-lined skinks may be found in almost any habitat, but are most common in wooded areas with an abundance of fallen trees and stumps to hide in. Five-lined skinks prefer moister habitats that the similar southeastern five-lined skink, and are particularly common in bottomland forests and along wooded river margins.
