Schneider's skinks can change color according to temperature. So one that looks light one day can look dark on another day.

You will have a *very* hard time finding CB babies. Pet stores can buy loads of wild caught lizards for relatively cheap. And since they only lay 2-5 eggs every 2-3 years there is little incentive to breed them. A sad and likely unsustainable situation.

Fortunately this lizard has a wide range of occurrence, virtually all over the Middle East and North Africa, so hopefully they can hold on, but no animal population is limitless, and many long-time hobbyists have seen animals that used to be a dime a dozen now extremely rare.

Yes, this species seems to have a naturally friendly personality (with some exceptions). I have two babies that were born last August and they are incredibly wary of my presence, but are slowly coming around with handling. There is a natural instinct in almost all lizards to be "born running."

You should not have a hard time finding wild-caught adults and then you can start breeding them yourself.
