    Anyone got any photos of their Pink Tongue Skink enclosures? And would you say UV lighting is essential with these guys as they are primarily nocturnal?

    I don't use UV at all for my Pinkies... never have. Mine tend to come out only in the late afternoon and stay up quite late after their lights have turned off at night. I have the lights on a timer for a few hours in the morning and then several in the afternoon. I don't think UV would hurt but I've never had any issues without it... and my female is again pregnant this year after a successful litter of 17 last year.

    Don't have pictures of my setup atm, sorry.

    I've never used UV-B for either of my pink tongues, however supplying a low level of UV-B (~2.0 or 5.0 at most) certainly wouldn't harm them.

    Here is an older photo of the enclosure my male is in.
