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


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.


Skinks are reclusive lizards that can be found in forests and grasslands. They have a habit of burrowing underground to avoid both predators and prey. 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 them within a few months.
