    It's still a water skink. They don't necessarily have to be directly near water.

    I have seen them at Glenlock Lagoon, within metres of the surf, and on Stockton Breakwater where I saw one cheaky specimen help itself to another fisherman's bang of green prawns , was bold as brass - as soon as his back was turned it dashed over and nabbed a whole green prawn and then dashed straight back to the crevice between to blocks where it came from, it's a wonder there are any lizards living on Stockton Breakwater as it's literally swarming with stray / feral cats.
