Northern Red-throated Skink (Carlia rubrigularis)
This young skink was warming itself on a dark lava rock near the visitor's center for Lake Barrine, where we were waiting to board the wildlife-viewing boat cruise. Wildlife is all around us if we just look for it.

Several of these skinks were actively foraging in the leaf litter, but only this one decided to sit still and pose for me.
