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.
