Alpine She-oak Skink

Found in only a few locations in Victoria and NSW, the Alpine She-oak Skink is listed as endangered. It lives 1500m above sea level at the top of isolated mountain habitats. Alpine She-oak Skinks will imitate a snake if threatened, pulling their legs in close to their body and flicking their tongues. They hibernate over winter and are known to live for more than five years in the wild.
