Skink wall

Skinks seem to thrive in urban habitats. In Canberra we had some in a rocky grassy north-facing courtyard. Here in Cootamundra we have an entire family, possibly a nation, living on our north facing wall. A bit nerve-wracking when they come inside and you see just a flickering movement out of the corner of your eye ... The brickwork is very rough, lots of places to hide, lots of spiders and other things to eat. And of course, the drainpipe panic rooms (patent pending) make a wonderful refuge when big scary people with cameras appear. Rough brickwork North facing skink wall, warm all year
