Red-eyed Crocodile Skink - Tribolonotus gracilis

The Red-Eyed Crocodile Skink, Tribolonotus gracilis (Scincidae), is a terrestrial, semi-aquatic skink, with up to 25 cm in length, native to New Guinea and the surrounding islands of Indonesia and Solomon Islands.

Adults develop the trademark bright orange or red ring around the eye and a creamy appearance to their underbelly. Crocodile skinks have large, triangular heads and are distinguished by four rows of pointy, ridged, bony scales (vertebral spines) along their back and tail, and textured, leathery skin, all of which are reminiscent of a crocodilian and lead to the skink’s name.

Other common names are Orange-Eyed Crocodile Skink, Red-Eyed Bush Crocodile Skink, Armored Skink or Helmeted Skink.
