Spring Break 2023: Plestiodon inexpectatus

Plestiodon inexpectatus, the Southeastern five-lined skink;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

Pictured here is a lovely Southeastern five-lined skink bagging some morning rays. Our native skink species can be fairly reactive and shy, so I was pleased this one continued to bask while I leaned in a bit for a photograph. They’re not always so accommodating.
