Thanks, yeah ot really what I want then.
Pity you can't get a permit to take from the wild here, we are in a new housing estate and the number of displaced garden skin,s around here a the moment is quite sad, I'd gladly give them a lovely ome if I could do it legally.Get your slimey webbed phalanges off my boots!

That's very much my upper. Limit but not too bad, I'll check them out. Can't imagine they'd be overly suited to a forest type tank though?Get your slimey webbed phalanges off my boots!

Eastern Water Skinks have been mentioned a few times for the pond and water fall set up. I love the river side set up but they are bigger than you are after and I would not call them good colony animals. I believe other people have managed to raise a large group of babies together and most have still been fine together as adults. It was my hope years ago to get three or four into a six foot if they all liked each other. I still only have pairs together and extra males living in their own smaller tanks. Even the females can be extremely vicious to other females. I also had offspring grow up with the parents but when they mature the parents have turned on them.
Yeah i think they would possibly be ok n a large pit as a colony but i suspect a sixfoot would be too close quarters for them really. When i say waterfall i wasmore thinking along the lines of trickling brook, running the water across part of the enclosure to have a shallower angle on the flow of water, i did much the same thing when i was a teenager to create a tank for frogs and it worked really well, would love to do something like that again.Get your slimey webbed phalanges off my boots!

There is a section in the book Keeping & Breeding Australian Lizards about Garden Skinks and John Deutscher's (Sdaji on this site?) experiences with keeping and breeding them for quite a few years. Don't know for sure if I have the right person or if he still keeps them. I think they would be great in the set up you are describing. I have seen other people wanting them in the past on this site but never seen anyone say they had found any.
