Sphenomorphus sabanus — Sabah Slender Skink
Some other names for this species:
Sabah Litter Skink
These little skinks were common on logs and tree trunks near Poring, but very skittish. I saw many a skink before I got this one decent photo.
In Danum Valley, they were still quite skittish, but also even more common. I lugged around my 300mm lens and tripod to get a few good photos without getting too close.
