Skinks - by Timoteo

Skinks are Lizards and they’re Native to New Zealand. They were here millions of years ago. They are protected by law. Tuatara are not lizards, they’re reptiles. Geckos can climb, and skinks can just stay on the ground.

There tails come off  when a predators  grabs them. The tail grows slowly and the colour goes different from the one he had before.The scales look like the one’s  from a fish but their scales are dry.

The food they eat is insects and spiders, and soft fruits. Most of the Skinks are carnivors that means that they eat meat.

When they try to escape their enemies they can run as fast as they can. Tuatara and birds eat skinks.

Skinks are very weird animal.
