Out at the Black Oystercatcher a couple of weeks back, we spotted this Cape Skink (Trachylepsis capensis) on the way into the restaurant (us, not him).
Check the three stripe detail on those scales (bigger here). Sponsored by Adidas, clearly.
He was quite willing to pose for us, although disappeared into the “koffieklip” conglomerate when we got too close. It’s worth noting that these lizards can be domesticated, but also that wikipedia says that they “have a tendency to become quite overweight” in these cases.
This one was very tame and a seriously fat bastard.
So sure, n=1, but wikipedia seems to be spot on again.
