Copper-tailed Skink Ctenotus taeniolatus.
This individual was trapped during a fauna survey of a woodland in the south-west slopes. The white dot on its front leg is an identifying mark of water based ‘liquid paper’ that we put there to allow us to recognise the individual if trapped again during the survey. The ‘dot’ falls off in about a week or so.
