Found a five-lined skink in this ceramic pot that sits under our front spigot. I am pretty sure it had been trying to get out and couldn't.
I showed it up close to the kids- seeing details I never knew before- how the blue of the tail extends up the white stripes a bit, how it has one longer toe on each foot- texture of the tail looks different, too, closer to the body- is this the breaking point? or where it had broken before and grown back?
Then we set the flowerpot on its side under some plants and left it alone. It was gone half an hour later when we peeked again.
