In this video we’re showing an up close look at the Monkey Tailed Skink (Solomon Island Skink). This species of skink can be found in Solomon Islands. This skink is arboreal and has a prehensile tail which helps navigate through its habitat. They are herbivores that feed on leaves, flowers, and fruit in the wild.
Blood Pythons a vicious eaters and will eat rats throughout their life. Female Blood Pythons grow to be 48 to 72 inches long, which is longer than males who only grow to be about 36 to 60 inches. They can weigh about 10 to 15 pounds. They are a nocturnal species of python and are ambush predators.
Leopard Geckos will eat their shed skin to gain some nutrients. When they are not eating their skin Leopard Geckos will eat an assortment of insects like crickets and mealworms. Leopard Geckos will store fat in their tails just in case they can’t find food, so a healthy leopard Gecko will have a nice fat tail. They can drop their tail if threatened, but fortunately for them it will grow back.
