Some Ocellated skinks were born the other day.

Ocellated skinks (Chalcides ocellatus) are small skinks (8-11 in) found in Italy (Sardinia, Sicily, Lampedusa island), Malta, Greece (Crete, Karpathos, Rhodos, Kythnos, Kasos), Cyprus, Turkey (Anatolia).

In the last few years, we’ve become huge skink fans, and Ocellated Skinks are one of a few species that have found their way into our menagerie. These beautiful skinks are as smooth as glass, with glossy overlapping dorsal scales and relatively small limbs.

We hope everyone is managing well during these challenging times. COVID has presented many challenges. However, one of the benefits for us has been the opportunity to spend more time with our animals.

We thought we would share a photo of our adult female Rain Snake (Gonyosoma frenatus) . This is an arboreal species native to India, South China, Taiwan, and North Vietnam.

These boas are naturally hypo in color, featuring orange tail saddles with clean, background color, and light speckling. “Hog’s” as they’re affectionately called by keepers, are unique in the way they can vary in coloration.  Being light in color in in the early morning hours. their color hue tends to darken throughout the day. Our groups of pure Hog Isle boas that we’re working with have reduced speckling and vibrant orange tails.

Be sure to read our terms of service when purchasing an animal. We’ll always try to do our best to accommodate you best we can. Contact us for details.
