so if any one is thinking of learning to handle your skink here is some advice. They are super quick, way quicker then other lizards so watch him and where he goes. BIG PART OF ADVICE! - if you have a printer keep it closed or away from him. lol story: today i had him out handling on my arm and what not he chilled there for like 10 minutes as i did random stuff around the house then i came to my room and sat down he darted straight for my printer. soo i unplugged it first of all cuz i didnt want him to get shredded or hurt or anything. mmm he hid in a little crack inside the printer so i had to get a coat hanger out and lure him out with food lol. anyways lesson for all of you make sure your somewhere there are no hiding places that you cant get your skink easily. I got him out and yay hes safe.
