I caught this little skink scuttling across my bedroom floor the other day. Native copper skink or introduced rainbow skink I wondered? Well, in suburban Auckland most likely it’s rainbow but the easy way to tell for sure is to look at the scale pattern on its head. Easier said than done as it wouldn’t sit still and I needed to hold a magnifying glass on it. Then while looking at the ipad I noticed a movement out of the corner of my eye – it was off, out of the jar and escaping again. In the end I put it in the back garden which is more rough than manicured so it should be happy.
