    My girlfriends friend said this little critter was in her shed. She snapped a photo for an Id then let it back out where it was. Roughly 25-30cm long total length.
    Found around Sydney area.

    At first without seeing the picture I said probably an eastern water skink as they are common. But after seeing the photo I am not sure.

    Looks like a she-oak skink, as a kid we used to find them all the time in Wollongong.

    I think it's a she-oak I was tricked by Shrinkie, in another thread about guessing what the reptile was. And it was indeed a She-oak
