Five toes and pretty sure four fingers. Bit hard to get a good photo.

I'm afraid Saproscincus has five fingers, not visible in these images. That little yellow mark behind the eye is a useful guide to this species. Skinks often lose the odd digit which can be a trap for young players! They are not all that common in the ACT but populations have been recorded.

Thanks - didn't think it quite matched the description of Carlia.
