Cunningham's Skink
Egernia cunninghami

Cunningham's Skink is a large skink (20 cm from snout to vent) mostly found from southern Queensland through to southern inland Victoria with a few isolated populations in central Queensland and southern SA. They are usually found in rocky areas and can use the spines of their scales to wedge themselves into rock crevices if threatened. They are onmivorous, feeding on fungus, insects, shoots, berries, leaves and flowers.
