Family : SCINCIDAE
Species : Eutropis macularia
Size (snout to vent) : 7 cm
Size (total length) : 16 cm

The Speckled Forest Skink mainly inhabits dry deciduous forests. It is a leaf litter dweller, where it forages for its food prey of small spiders, insects and other invertebrates. Patience is required to see this species, as it active and fast moving.

In the field, the key identifying feature is the orange-red throat colour in adults, and the two pale bands along the neck and shoulder. Juveniles are grey with a bronze head. As with other Eutropis species the scales are keeled.

The species ranges from Pakistan and India to Indochina, Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia.
