Five lined skink in her nest.
today when I was doing some yard work I lifted up one of the stepping stones in my garden and found a mother five lined skink in her nest. I quickly and carefully covered her back up. The mother skink will stay with her eggs until they hatch. I was amazed a the size and number of eggs.
This is not my picture, I did not want to disturb her any more, so I found this picture which is representative of the one I saw, except mine had more eggs and there was that pleading look in her eye.
