    Peters Banded Skinks - Care & more

    Hello! I just got back from seeing a friend at my local pet store whom gave me a pretty good deal on a mating pair of banded skinks aka Scincopus fasciatus. Currently I have the proper substrate with a UTH and a uvb bulb up top. I have been trying to research as much as i can about these but have difficulty finding any information on the web about them. So far i have found out theyre native to africa and have been in the pet trade only for a few years so far. Can anyone point me in the direction of some info about these guys or have any personal experiences they can share?
    Thank you!!! -Jon

    The folks at Reptile Rapture are good, I trust their caresheets in general.

    I don't know how to add YouTube links on this page! But Clintsreptiles is a YouTube channel I watch and he has a pretty good video on their care and handling.
