New arrivals! The long awaited Cunningham’s skink babies have started to drop alive and well. Proud mothers started giving birth last week, and there are 10 babies so far with many more to come. They all weigh between 7g and 9g and are very lively. Their arrival has sparked debate into what is the cutest lizard baby species – however looking at these photos there is no competition!
