We spotted a friend that’s common on the park and in this area: the native blue-tailed skink! Do you know what this skink’s special, life-saving ability is?

This native blue-tailed skink, recently found at the park, can detach its tail! The wiggling tail often provides just enough of a distraction for the skink to make a swift getaway from predators. The tail will regenerate, but after it’s detached once it usually grows back in a darker hue like that of its body color.
