The Eastern Crevice Skink

I have to admit that when it comes to species identification my interests lay more on the side of Flora as opposed to Fauna, but we had to research this one because what  young kid doesn’t like catching lizards.

Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe this little guy is a young Egernia mcpheei and commonly known as the Eastern Crevice Skink.

There was very little information to be found about this skink other than that they grow to 14.5 cm long and are found along the Northern Nsw and southern Queensland coast. They like to live in the crevices of rocks and can often be found at Booyong amidst the external cabin walls and timber which seem appropriate.
