Skink in the house

Posted by jerry on January 27th, 2006 — Posted in Journal

In Australia small lizards, known as skinks are considered good luck if you see them – especially for women. Well, since we have been doing so much to the garden recently, and disturbed all the insects and provided drippers for irrigation, the population of skinks in our garden has multiplied considerably. Anyhow, today the little luck dragons came into the house (they eat mosquitoes and other annoying little insects), and I even had the camera nearby to snap the one in our kitchen 🙂

The little fellow was about 15cm long from nose to tail, and had a beautiful opalescence to his skin – I wish him happy hunting to rid the house of tiny biting insects 🙂 He’s welcome anytime!

I have no idea what link made me stumble upon you, but I had to laugh! I have had many a “skink in the house” and have some very similiar pics that I’ve yet to post on my blog. How wonderful to know I’m not the only wild creature keeper. Cheers and happy day to you!
