Lord Howe Island skink

This species is found on Norfolk and Lord Howe Island. Introduced rats have reduced its numbers greatly on the main Lord Howe Island, and it manages to survive in places it can hide from rats; for example amongst boulders on some coastal areas. It also exists in moderate numbers on the offshore islets which are rodent free.
