FAMILY SCINCIDAE

SKINKSKINK

SKINK

Many skinks give live birth.  Most eat insects but some also include small mammals and birds in their diet.

Only the subfamily Lygosomatiinae is found in South America.  Although skinks are one of the most successful groups of lizards in the world, few are known from South America.
