Leeway Corucia Research Center (LCRC)

To Crocodile skink guardians:

Always remember that this species has a Circulus structure like Corucia.

"The social bond and parental attention of reptiles appears equal in both egg laying and live bearing reptiles. Another case of egg laying lizards with a Circulus is the species: Tribolonotus gracilis - underlined, the crocodile skink. The female will sit on the egg and guard the young. As in the case of Corucia, the young tend to stay close to the parents, especially, the mother who guards the neonate. The young skink will often climb on the adaxial (back) area of the female or male for protection and security, just as in the case of the Solomon Islands Monkey skink: Corucia zebrata -underlined."

Please do not strip babies from their Circulus group until they are of the proper age.

Thanks for listening.
Sincerely,
Brian
LCRC
