Two Birds Depart, Two Lizards Arrive

Spreo Starling

Yesterday we took a couple of our spreo starlings to Tropiquaria in Somerset where they will join up with the flock that live in a large tropical house.

Solomon island skink

In exchange we received two Solomon Island skinks, also known as monkey-tailed skinks and prehensile-tailed skinks, these tree-living herbivorous lizards have an unusual biology. I’ll post some more information and pictures on these attractive reptiles in the next few days.
