    I could find some things on skinks but not yellow sided ones in particular, only someone asking what to do with theirs while they are away, not much out there

    Hi there Puddles, I've never heard of a yellow sided skink before, there is a red sided skink but its not one of them.
    To me it looks like Eumeces schneideri more commonly known as a Berber skink, but I'm no expert on skink species so I could easy be wrong
