DescriptionEdit

Adult Bermuda skinks (also known locally as "rock lizards") have dark brown or black backs and are pinkish or light gray on the underside. Juveniles are lighter in color and have black stripes running along the sides of their bodies, which fade with age. Females retain the stripes longer than males. Adult males have larger heads. Hatchlings have bright blue tails. All have salmon orange cheeks and throat.

The Bermuda skink lives predominantly in rocky coastal areas. They feed on small invertebrates such as crickets or beetles, but also on small terrestrial crustaceans.

While being more active during summer, the Bermuda Skink does not hibernate because the warm climate allows it to be active year-round.

In the UkEdit

In the UK there have been around a dozen reports of these lizards in Wykeham Forest in Yorkshire in England. Although no actual survays have been taken to prove that these lizards have astablished a small breeding population there, there are reconed to be at least around 10 breeding populations there. But there colonisation there could be in threat due to our cold winters but hopefully they will survive to the future.
