Cunningham’s Skink – Egernia cunninghami

16 Mar , 2017  

Cunningham’s Skink is a large member of the skink family, up to 40cm in length, variable in colour but generally reddish with spots or blotches being common variants. They have knobbly or “keeled” scales, and are found throughout South Eastern Australia along watercourses in rocky outcrops.

Egernia cunninghami are shy creatures that are sometimes seen basking in the sunlight on rocks. They live in the cracks and crevices and use their keeled scales to escape predators by puffing themselves up and wedging themselves into the rocks.

Cunningham’s Skink – Photo by Robert Jackson

The skinks (adult and young), in this photo captured by our guitarist, were seen by the Kororoit Creek near Albion, Victoria, in one of the remnant vegetation areas.

Their presence emphasises the importance of remnant vegetation areas as habitat for a whole range of plants and animals.

Cunningham’s Skinks are omnivorous and eat a variety of plants, fungi and insects, so one has to assume that the remnant areas abound in these foods.
