Identify Such Mysterious Creatures
Because of ignorance, I was frightened by a harmless
lizard in my home. If I had known the facts about this tiny creature,
I may have made a special effort gently to remove it from my kitchen
and free it outdoors where it could have thrived.
I shared this experience through this website. And
many viewers, at my request, identified the creature for me, and
told me that I had no reason to be afraid of it. By providing links
to several websites on skinks, I hope to encourage others to learn
about these innocent little creatures who only appear ugly and scary
to the uneducated mind.
