Southeastern Five-Lined Skink

Plestiodon inexpectatus


A very young Five-lined Skink. At this stage they have not fully developed the namesake lines completely. As they reach adulthood they lose much of their bright coloration, including the blue tails.


A nature preserve in southern Florida.


Many people call these blue-tail skinks, but that is actually a genus found in Australia unrelated to the new world species.
