When you find that special skink.. pick it up, handle it, look at its scales. You want nice, clean and smooth skin. Eyes should be clear, the vent should be clean as well. Crusty, flaky skin (or eyes) is a good sign of mites deep under the scales. Lizards shed in pieces, but these skinks kind of "swim" out of their sheds..

A dirty vent is gut problems &/or worms, diarrhea? The poop should be kind of dry and firm. Don't be afraid to pass on the buy if you don't feel is it healthy!

Schneider's are super hardy lizards and you will have years of awesomeness when you do get one.. I have well over 40 reptiles and these skinks are THE favorite (next to a certain red-foot tortoise that is)
