The skink is a family of reptile lizards found in most parts of the world. Skinks have smooth, shiny scales on their bodies. Most skinks are small, less than 8 inches in length. Skinks can break off their tails when confronted by an enemy. For example, the five-lined skink has a bright blue tail, and if attacked the tail breaks off and wriggles to distract the attacker as the skink escapes.
