Blue-Tailed Skink Nest with Eggs, Fultondale

We have always had an abundance of Blue-Tailed Skinks around the house (one of which previously made an appearance on the blog with a story about Darby, here).

Recently, while I was tending to the compost bin, I found beneath it a nest of Blue-Tailed Skink eggs, and you can just see a part of momma skink's tail in the photo.

I kept tabs on them for several weeks, and one morning went out to find all the eggs hatched. And of late, I have since seen quite a few of the baby critters about.
