Nine has a friend outside the bathroom window. His friend lives under the shutters. The little Skink was sticking its head out and in, out and in, just to make Nine crazy. I tried to get a picture of his friend in the shutters, but he was very shy and kept hiding each time I went to snap a shot. Both Nine and Stella spend a lot of time in the bathroom window with the Skinks. I have a little birdhouse right by that window and I wonder sometimes if they are living in there too. Ground skinks are small, smooth-scaled lizards with an adult length of 3 to 5.5 inches. They are typically a copper brown with a dark line running along each side of the body. Th ground skink has a long tail, sometimes up to 2.5 times the body and short limbs. Their small limbs are relatively unused, as ground skinks use their slender bodies to wriggle and burrow through leaf litter and loose soil. They prey on insects, spiders, and other earthworms.
Nine and Stella pray on them.
