Dasia vittata — Striped Tree Skink
Some other names for this species:
This species has bounced back and forth between genus Dasia and genus Apterygodon over the decades. Sometimes its gender is reversed, and reversed back again, so you might see it referred to as Dasia vittatum or Apterygodon vittatus or various other combinations.
This active little skink entertained Kurt and me while we ate breakfast. We were in an open-sided dining area built on stilts ten or fifteen feet off the ground that sloped down towards a river. The skink was considerably higher off the ground than that on a riverside tree, but more or less eye level with us due to the sloping ground.
