Thanks for the compliments on Dill! She is a Corucia Zebrata...or also called Monkey Tailed Skink, also Prehensile Tailed Skink...or even Solomon Island Skink. Which is where she's from...The Solomon Islands. I LVOE her soooo much! She's such a doll!!
::This is Dill right after we brought her home from the pet shop. You can sort of see her really bad toe, and the tight band of skin around it in this picture. It's the second toe in on her front foot. Notice how the claw on that toe is turned to the side, rather than under her foot like the others (well, there ARE no others on that foot...I mean in comparison to her back feet).
::Each of those dark spots part way down her back toes are also bands of unshed skin. BUT...those ones are GONE now! I was able to remove them with lots of soaking, and massages with vegetable oil, and with the GENTLE help of a toothpick.
::You can see in the second picture that she is missing three of the toes on her right foot as well.
:Your skink is so beautiful - which country is her natural habitat, and does she have a common name?
