Plague skink prints on inked tracking card.
Plague skink prints on inked tracking card. Species identification is possible by counting 11-13 lamellae of front and 21-23 lamellae of rear 4th toes, where a well defined print has been made. The prints are tiny, given that plague skinks vary between 36 – 55 mm long from snout to base of tail.
