the colourful skink of Bintan Resorts


Skinks

A stroll within the small forested area near Bintan Resorts’ mangrove jetty yielded this unexpected beautiful many-lined sun skink. Surprisingly it did not run when I was closing in. It was enjoying the morning sun, and was not bothered by me. As a matter of fact I was the one struggling with the many mosquito bites while trying to be quiet and take a good focus.

For those who have not meet a skink before, it is part of the huge lizard family. This particular species, Eutropis multifasciata, also locally known as kadal kebun or bengkarung biasa. We can easily determine a skink by the absence of a pronounced neck and a rather fat belly (compared to a lizard).

Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!
