This Keeled Grass Skink is a native reptile of Karnataka, India (http://www.titlitrust.com/Scincidae.html). This stumbled upon the compound wall of my apartment in Bangalore. I quickly grabbed my camera and ran behind it for a good shot since this reptile is very shy and very agile. After running around for 15min, this Skink stared at me while I took this picture.
