These tropical rainforest skinks eat a variety of insects, including crickets and earthworms. The Red-Eyed Bush Crocodile Skink are known to make loud noises, either in mating season, or to ward off predators. They will almost always be found near a body of water, as these skinks thrive in damp areas.
