Found this little guy in the rain-forest this morning. This is a huge old dead tree and he was living in a hole at the top.

Love the skink! Hate the leech, in fact so much I am not going back to that page and lol at photographing the sucker while being attacked.

M.A. : "Oh hey I have a bloody leech on my ankle. Nevermind, where's the camera, then? Right, ok hold still litttle fellow while I take a few photos will, you? Dam! I'm bleeding! Help!" [M.A. hobbles to the computer flashcard in hand and trailing blood from a wet sock]

Ummm yep ... that's about how it happened. He (the leech) had been on me for an hour before we got home and I found him so another few minutes to get the shot wasn't going to hurt :)

Hey ... I let him go in the backyard :) Either the ants will get him ... or he'll get us!!
