I am done breeding skinks and I want to find good homes for the skinks I have left
I previously had been breeding skinks but I am done breeding them and have 6 babies that need to find homes and I am looking for a home for one of the moms. Keeping two together can be problematic because once they get to a certain age they will often start fighting amongst themselves so I have to keep them all housed separately. (That's a lot of cages and i'm running out of room in my small place) I'm asking for $20 per skink.Oscillated skinks are one of the smallest breeds of Skinks and very easy to care for. I suggest keeping them in a glass fish tank so smaller then 10 gallons. I recommend using walnut shell bedding (can be found at most pet stores). They love burring themselves in this stuff and swimming in it. They will spend most of their time in it. You will need a bowl for fresh water and something for them to climb on. You need to provide them with a heat source, an under tank heater, a heat lamp, or a low temperature small heat rock. Also they will need a UVB lamp or keep them next to a window with access to natural sunlight. I feed each baby skink about 10 small calcium dusted crickets a week and the adults about 20 small calcium dusted crickets a week. If there are too many left over or none at all I will increase or decrease this number appropriately. To supplement this I suggest giving them a mixture of wet cat food chicken patte mixed with finely chopped dark leafy greens and some finely chopped fruits mixed together. They all love this stuff. These guys are very easy to handle, ive never had one bite me. They can be hard to catch when taking them out at first but after a second or two they settle down and are very easy going. The time it takes for them to calm down decreases over time and the amount you handle them. Babies are normally faster and more squirmy when it comes to being handled.Message me if you have any questions about these entertaining creatures or for more pictures. I plan on taking more this week. When they are active they can be quite the clownish type. I will not ship these little guys but ill meet part way if you are within a reasonable driving range. I live in Chicago, IL. Photo 1: 5 of apricots babies. The one with the nipped off tail already has a home. Born April 26, 2012Photo 2: Apricot, the mom of the babies in photo 1. She is for sale.
