He's lucky. These skinks give me the creeps!

Chungu, The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar

Skinks are lizards that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands and the Outlands.


In The Real World

Striped skinks are bronze and yellow while fire skinks have bright colors of red, gold and black. Males have bulkier bodies while females have flatter heads and wider jaws.

In The Lion Guard

Skinks are larger than geckos.


In The Real World

Skinks are reclusive lizards that can be found in forests and grasslands. They have a habit of burrowing underground to avoid predators. Skinks feed on a variety of insects such as crickets that make up most of their diet. They also have the ability to detach their tails to distract predators in order to escape and then regenerate one within a few months.

In The Lion Guard

They are quick movers.
