Laurel Loop #6
Five Lined Skink → Plestiodon fasciatus
● Five-lined skinks are most common in wooded areas with lots of fallen trees and
stumps to hide in. The species prefers moist habitats that are quite common in bottomland forests and along wooded river margins.
● FUN FACT: The young of five lined skinks have blue-tails that disappear in adulthood.
