Bellatorias frerei Major Skink
Moreton Island, Queensland, AustraliaFebruary 16, 2003
Major Skink (Bellatorias frerei)
This was a great big honking skink, the largest wild skink I have ever seen. Apparently it got that way by avoiding large mammals, as I couldn't approach it closely enough to get any sort of decent picture. I saw another of these in Mossman Gorge also, for about 1/3 of a second.

Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Australia.
