A skink glimpsed in the wood heap in the front of our garden.

From the markings on its side, I expect it's Oligosoma nigriplantare.

The plant in the foreground is the garden weed, cleavers, Galium aparine.

Northern Spotted Skink (Oligosoma kokowai)

Observer

January 2012

Description

Today on Matiu/Somes Island (Wellington NZ) these large, fat skinks were out sunbathing in good numbers, which is good because they are becoming rare in much of their natural range. The island has been free of introduced predators for many years and the recovery of native reptiles is one of the success stories of that programme.
A beautifully marked skink, these photos do not show off the star-field effect as much as they appeared to the human eye in natural sunlight. Nevertheless they show a beautiful animal, about 90mm from nose to vent (plus tail). Found in the lower North Island, Nelson/Marlborough and south to about mid-Canterbury.
