Prehensile-tailed Skink

Corucia zebrata

They are extremely arboreal and use their prehensile tails as they move from branch to branch. Prehensile-tailed skinks are the largest member of their family. They are viviparous, delivering a live neonate after a gestation period of nearly 8 months, a very unusual trait among reptiles.
