    Thx for the info... Nice specimens... Are they reliant on a skink diet or were you able to bring them up on others sources of food?

    Very Nice Bob,

    I was wondering if you'd pop some pictures up.

    Danny they eat insects and other arthropods in the wild so no need to feed them with tails etc.

    Mine are fed crickets every second night the same as my geckos (a very close relative of pygopods). Dusted 2 out of 3 feeds, misted every few days and with a damp spot under the cool end hide.

    I haven't had them for long, however I do plan to increase the number of these guys when I install my new shelves for more room :D

    They are so interesting what's the going rate for them do they have basically the same husbandry requirements as geckos
