We found this beautiful Peter’s Writhing Skink in our house one day. You don’t see these little guys very often, as they prefer to hide under logs, or bushes, or anywhere moist. How he ended up in the laundry room, I don’t know. We actually tried to keep one of these as a pet once, but had trouble getting it to eat. I think our skink wasn’t kept in the right environment to be happy, so we finally let it go. The funny thing about this animal is that when it runs, it has a slithering motion like a snake. I’m sure there have been many people who have fought a panic attack over seeing this harmless creature.
