The Gidgee Skink is more like a spiny lizard than a glossy
skink. Native to scrub habitat in southern
Australia, it hides in rock crevices like spiny-tailed
lizards, with its tail of raised spines outwards.
Like other Spiny-tailed Skinks (among the
Egernier species), it climbs well.

It is a social animal living in groups. It is said to
recognise family members, know their relationship and
sometimes pair monogamously.
