    Some pics of my sheoak skinks. Mum dropped 15 babies this season what an effort! Some babies are allready showing nice colours! These guys are becomming more common in captivity which is a great thing, There is quite a diversity in colours from reds to yellows and even some very dark ones (possibly melenistic?) kicking around in captivity. Feel free to add some of your own photos :]

    Looks like they are trying to be baby eastern brown snakes (with legs!).

    Well done. Not only have you got babies but you managed to get them through some hot weather

    Ive been keeping mine on dirt (very clay based) and have spraying them alot daily they seem to always be thirsty and do like it cool. I have been feeding them baby woodies and chopped up big ones. Yesterday fed them on some cat food and they are fat as little pigs so all is good so far. I guess keeping them cool and moist might help?
