BLUE SPECKLED FOREST SKINK
Karma (=Silvascincus) (was Eulamprus) murrayi
(Note that the genus Silvascincus is a junior synonym of Karma)
This skink was found at Dorrigo National Park, NSW.
Murray's skinks were extremely common in the area basking on rocks and logs, and often allowed us to approach them to take photos without running away.
This baby skink was found at Crystal Shower Falls, Dorrigo, NSW. - the pattern changes drastically as the lizard grows!
This lizard is often found in small colonies amongst rocks or rotten logs. Females may give birth to up to 5 live young.
