    (I'll be back, if it doesn't come out.) (Did, but not the greatest pic of one.)



    Dat's a juvenile, common here as well. Have any broadhead skinks? Male and female, they get about 30% larger

    Yea, I imagine they take several weeks to go back. It's amazing that they do and a great defense mechanism.

    According to this site, we do, but I've never seen any of that variety around where I live.
    Herps of Arkansas: Lizards

    I know, not too helpful to not post the pics. Hmm. Oddly enough, though, I can't find any that resemble the two types I mostly see, so it seems redundant to bother pulling up pics.

    They are not very common, been years since I last saw one. IIRC, they like mature oak hammocks or cypress hammocks. The "blue tail" appears to be a juvenile five lined skink, but a juvenile broadhead looks very similar.

    A myth says skinks are venomous, just a myth.

    Spent a lot of time catching, or rather, trying to catch, lizards w/the kids, then g-kids. The looks on their poor faces if they missed, and the poor thing lost its tail.
    Never saw one - or maybe not paid as close attention? - take as long as this one to grow his tail back.
    But yeah, great defense mechanism, so I hope it comes back soon, or it'll be Coach Whip dinner!

    Yes, myth. But now I see what you mean by the juveniles, 'cuz it could be this: Southern Coal Skink


    Or this: Common Five Lined


    Sorry the pics are so small. Not sure.

    Is that what you're saying 'blue tails' grow into?

    Those are cool looking.

    (Finally added "Southern Coal Skink," and "Common Five Lined" to my post.)

    Lizards are some interesting creatures, and kept my g-kids and me busy on many an afternoon hunting around all the bricks and blocks stacked up around the house and outbuildings.
    Hey, when all else fails, "I know! Lets go lizard hunting!"
    G-kids: "Yeah!"

    Oh, such delightful memories.

    Saw a reptile house online selling 12 of these as "feeder lizards" (some snakes and lizards only prey on lizards)*coachwhip comes to mind* 12 for 34$.
    When i walk out my door, 12 or more scatter. Potential E bay $?

    Probably captive bread for parasite concerns.

    Ah yes, lizard hunting in the halcyon days of my youth. Glad you are there to create and participate in those memories

    Those blue tails, are common in several species, off the top of my head, used as a lure for insect prey or decoy for predator. Schools of thought vary, I think both.
