    Hi, I am interested in getting a pair of fire skinks, but I have a few questions, and I was wondering if someone could help me out. I have a 36" long x 15" deep x 20" tall tank, and I was wondering if this would be big enough for their whole lives. Also, if it is big enough, do they enjoy a lot...

    Best pic i could get because they are extremely shy, through glass from about 10ft away. They are starting to become more confident so hopefully will get a full body pic soon. Really beautiful to see in real life, very bright red and cool patterns.
