(1) There's no way a gecko or skink , for example, will grow as big as a Brachiosaurus.(2) For his doctoral work, Breck studied the reptiles and amphibians of Minnesota, with a special focus on the black-banded skink .(3) Rodents, salamanders, lizards, geckos, and skinks shed their tails.(4) They also eat small birds, snakes, lizards, and skinks .(5) In his suitcases were more than 200 live skinks , geckos, and frogs.(6) Now, I am seeing many more lizards, skinks and related reptiles in the yard.(7) There are a great many flowering bushes such as the distinctively Australian banksias, and red-tailed skinks are often seen sunning themselves on the rocks.(8) He makes few assumptions about higher-level lizard taxonomy and includes geckos, skinks and agamids among his in-group taxa.(9) The black-tailed monitor has a unique tactic to rustle up skinks , the small lizards on which it feeds.(10) The cryptic posture might make these skinks invisible to tree-dwelling predators as well.(11) I have skinks running around my house, whispering in my ear while I sleep.(12) There are many other snakes of all different sizes, as well as chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks , iguanas, spiders and huge tortoises.(13) While living here I have spotted many, including small shiny skinned skinks , geckos (jing-jocks and tokays), and large monitor lizards.(14) Those and other nymphs that were unable to feed should have died, thereby decreasing larval infestation levels on Seychelles skinks in September.(15) Mr Marshall said several other species of lizards and skinks were also starting to become active as the weather warmed.
