African Striped Skink at Ngorongoro crater lodge
We found this African Striped Skink right outside our lodge that was situated at the edge of the fabulous Ngorongoro crater. As a side note, we regret staying in that lodge. Its excessive luxury in such a unique wildlife spot was totally out of proportion. Poor research on our behalf.
The African striped skink , commonly called the striped skink, is a lizard in the skink family . The species is widespread in East Africa and southern Africa. It is not a close relation to the Australian striped skink, ''Ctenotus taeniolatus''.
