    Hey guys, I am leaving home to live in South America in January to be involved in some herp conservation projects and this means i can't look after my lovely lizards anymore! They are both very healthy, almost fully grown, friendly/tame, and come with whole set-up's. Because of this they make...

    I'm getting a few of these gorgeous little critters after Christmas, and was wondering what experiences people have had of them? I've read up care sheet after care sheet, but they all say pretty much the same thing, and this will be my first time venturing out of gecko territory, so I'd like to...

    Yeah I know I've posted a few times of my cutie, Flare... But I was taking some photos of her the other day, and oh my word... the poses... If she ever gave me reason to love her more then I already did, it would be these photos...

    I know I could be overreacting 'cause I adore her, but Flare hasn't been eating amazingly (even when offered food she'll eat around 1 food item every 2 or 3 days and won't touch mealworms I offer her either). Could anyone who keeps a fire skink tell me what an ideal weight for one is? Right...

    I finally managed to get a hold of some stuff for my fire skink, Flare! :D I'd like to say I'm quite happy with how it is now : victory: Feel free to tell me anything you think I should add :2thumb: She's in a 48"x15"x16" Vivexotic Vivarium Temps are 70 - 75 F on the cool side and 85-90 F on...

    Today I finally got a empty water spray bottle so I misted Flare's vivarium. She came out right away and wandered about drinking water out of her substrate (Orchid bark) and from the condensation from the glass and walls. She then went to her water bowl and started taking a gulp, then lifting...

    I just caught my Fire Skink, Flare, curled up in her mealworm bowl. She's such a silly skinky. :lol2: My New Fire Skink - YouTube What about your lizards, anyone got any funny stories or videos? I'd love to hear some/see some! :2thumb:

    She's absolutely gorgeous! :D I'm totally in love!:flrt: She's WC but lovely, tastes everything and has already had an explore and eaten 2 crickets! On her first day in her new home! She's a subadult/adult and has a regenerated tail. I have one question! How often do I feed her and how much? I...

    I know it's really hard to sex these guys but it's worth a shot putting up photos to see what you guys think ^^ It also seems to have a regrown tail :P :2thumb: Any ideas?

    I keep hearing that it's okay to keep 2 fire skinks together from some sources, but from others I hear that you shouldn't. If I kept two I'd want to introduce another next year but obviously I don't want to do that if it's one of those UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MUST YOU DO THAT!! :P Any thoughts...
  11. Lizard Care Sheets
    I've been looking around obviously and I want a care sheet for a fire skink with as many important facts and things that should be done when owning them (and things you shouldn't do) 'Cause I keep getting mixed information so there's no harm in getting as many opinions as possible right? :)...

    I know skinks are notoriously hard to sex, however I'm curious how much it would cost for me to go to a herp vet or something similar to get a blood test or something that would tell me the gender of the animal. I know there's ways such as females have a slightly duller colour and are slightly...

    I bought these two skinks as fire skinks at a reptile show but they look too different to both be fire skinks to me. The top one is deffo a fire skink but I can't work out the bottom one. I can't find anything about sexual dimorphism in this species so am left to assume it is a different...

    Hiya just a quick question, I have been researching round and after getting my own fire skink not long ago I was wondering if you can take a fire skink out in the sun? I know my blue tongues like it and benifit from it also there are a few other skink species that do too but just wondered about...
