Emerald Tree Skink

Lamprolepis smaragdina


The Emerald Tree Skink (Lamprolepis smaragdina), sometimes (ambiguously) known as "green tree skink", dwells in arboreal forests.


Eating mostly insects and other small creatures, although occasionally living of fruit and plants, they prefer bare tree trunks without climbing plants.


Alice, thanks for the help with the identification.
