The Southern Grass Skink (Pseudemoia entrecasteauxii) is a skink endemic to Australia, where it is found in the south-east of the continent, as well as in Tasmania and the islands of Bass Strait. Although it occurs in a variety of habitats, it is most commonly found in open grassy woodlands.
The Southern Grass Skinks gives birth to live young. They have a lifespan of about 5-6 years. They grow up to 7.5 centimeters (not including tail). Male skinks change colouration during the breeding season. To tell the difference between a male and female, check their bellies; females have an orange belly and males have a silver belly.
