Meet Henry


I found this no-so-little guy in my house today when I went to check in on the carpenters installing the doors. He walked in with me, had a look around, stopped and looked me in the face, and without a blink he turned around and walked out and went for a stroll around the yard.

I decided to name him Henry, in honor of my son's favorite characters of the moment, Thomas The Engine's friend Henry (although he's not green).

I've no idea what kind of lizard/reptile this is. Definitely your usual house lizard. It's got scales like a snake. I think that makes it a skink. Anyone know?

Yup. Looks like a palm skink. Sure it's got a more scientific name (like Henry)...

Either a four-lined or a five-lined skink. Can't tell from the photo though..
