Emerald Tree Skinks are quickly becoming more and more popular in the reptile keeping hobby. They are arboreal in nature and enjoy clambering around on thin twigs and branches. They are easy to care for and make for an attractive and active display. Native to SE Asia they are insect feeders and are exceptionally active; particularly skinks. Also unusually for skinks they lay eggs.
