I have a juvenile five lined skink. His name is Blueberry and he is about a month old. I have him on a diet of crickets and formica ants. He has a water bowl which is always full and he can easily get in and out of it. He is normally very energetic and playful and is constantly running around his tank, but today I noticed he was limp. He wriggles quite a bit when I touch the back of his neck, and he sometimes opens his mouth.I don't know if it's because he's trying to bite me or what, he's never done this before. I really don't want to lose him, as I'm very attached to him and have already shed tears over the subject. Please help me!!
