Author's notes

These Skinks are common in my garden with the warm summer weather, scurrying about amongst gravel feding on ants.

The common name for Lampropholis guichenoti (Common Garden Skink) is a bit misleading (at least here in Canberra). The skink commonly found in gardens in Canberra is Lampropholis delicata - (Delicate Skink). The photographs show a Delicate Skink. It is good to know that you already have these small skinks in your garden in a fairly new part of Canberra.
