Skink

We have skinks around here.

The colloquial name for this particular family of skinks are known as "Blue Racers".

They have a defense mechanism whereby, when they are threatened by a predator, they can detach their tail. While the predator is occupied by the wriggling tail, they make their escape.

(This one had just finished eating a cricket.)
