    I count 4 young, mum makes her appearance right in front of the camera, and the 2 adult males hangout on the log in the background.

    Cheers,
    Dave.

    Dave, as far as you know, does this species only tolerate family members (which they seem to recognise) and are they likely to be hostile/aggressive/intolerant of unrelated members of the same species if housed together?

    Generally they don't get along too well with strangers.

    But if you are trying to introduce cunninghams that are new to each other, neutral ground may help your chances. Eg an enclosure which hasn't housed either skink or other cunninghams.

    Thanks Dave. That's a very good suggestion and demonstrates good insight into this species territorial mechanics. It makes sense that scent and unique body patterns help identify territories and individuals.
