August 21st, 2009 – skink

I am finally getting around to adding the photos from this day.  This little fella got into our basement.  Apparently he’s already lost his blue tail somewhere.  But no worries, it will grow back!

Sorry about the location 😉 but he was scurrying about too much to photograph him anywhere else, but inside this plastic cup.  I am just glad that we were able to catch him and get him back outside where he belongs.  He seemed rather dehydrated and sluggish.  Hard to tell how long he’d been in our basement without water.

See the brilliant blue color in his tail that is growing back from whatever event caused him to pop it off?  And if you look really closely you can see the signs of dehydration in his little “toes”.   Good thing we found him when we did.
