It derives part of its common name, “crocodile skink,” from its four rows of dorsal, backward-curving keeled scales, each one tapering to a point, which resemble the dorsal scales of a crocodile.Red-eyed crocodile skinks are shy, crepuscular (active mostly at dawn and dusk) lizards. They are also capable of vocalizations when threatened or defending their offspring.
