King’s Skink

Egernia kingii


  • Western Australia


  • Coastal areas, scrub, and woodlands


  • Plants
  • Insects
  • Eggs
  • Small mammals

Like many lizards, king’s skinks can lose or drop their tail when threatened.

What’s really interesting is that with this species, when regeneration occurs, the skink maintains most of the original dexterity and mobility of the tail which is odd for specieswith regeneration capabilities. These skinks give birth to live young and live in smallfamily groups.
