Anepischetosia maccoyi — Highlands Forest-skink
Also known as:
McCoy’s Skink, Maccoy’s Elf Skink, Highland Elf Skink, Salamander Skink
My friend David Fischer led me to a spot where we uncovered a few of these skinks, as well as another interesting skink species and a frog.
Anepischetosia maccoyi are communal egg layers. Nests with 60 or so eggs from multiple parents have been found, as shown in this video.
