(Scincidae) Common names: Garden Skink, Delicate Skink.
A horde of tiny but voracious dragons inhabit many Sydney gardens. These glistening dragons mercilessly devour all manner of insects that foolishly stray into their path.
Millions of Garden Skinks (Lampropholis delicata) patrol the leaf litter, the rocks and the pathways of Sydney gardens. With ninja-like reflexes these tiny monsters pounce on beetles, crickets, woodlice and snails.
Without the slightest bit of benevolence to their prey, these dragons are the gatekeepers of eternity whereby insects enter their portal... and die!
