Voeltzkow’s Snake-eyed Skink (Cryptoblepharus voeltzkowi)
These skinks live on coastal rocks, and climb down into the intertidal zone to eat bugs and fish (!) when the tide is low. There must be some very small fish around the coast of Madagascar.

Thanks to Frank for venturing out onto the beach and past the quite persistent local sellers to find this skink.

Here is a list of all the reptiles and frogs I saw on this 2023 trip to Madagascar.
