Spring brings color to my cheeks..... male Five-lined Skink (Eumeces fasciatus)

I see that this fella also has a few battle scars alongside his chubby body. He proudly displays his manly orange head as breeding season has begun under the Oak Tree in my backyard ;0)

Yesterday I noticed that a female has been staying in close proximity to an open bag of peat moss I had left at the edge of the yard. I must store it so she doesn't begin a nest..... hope she hasn't already!
