Critter of the Week: The Otago Skink

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:35 pm on 26 August 2016

DOC's Endangered Species Ambassador Nicola Toki tells us all about the Otago Skink, our largest lizards, growing up to 30 centimetres long. 

They give birth to live young, and as the head first baby pops out, it skitters off to hunt for itself, with not even a backwards glance to its mother.
