Canada's only lizard
The 5 line skink is the only native lizard in Canada. Thee are lots of imports available at the pet stores but this is the only one you will find in the wild.
This one was in our backyard at Rondeau.
It is a small, smooth-bodied lizard, with black or grey colouring and five white or yellow stripes along the back.
When young it's tail is a bright blue. As it ages the colour fades.
