    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Still trying to get my male skink Zuko settled into his home. Would this be a bad time to introduce a female to the enclosure? Zuko is wild caught and extremely shy in his new home (1 week) so would a companion make things better or worse?

    I guess the question may be moot since I'm only as sure of the sex of Zuko as the person who sold him to me and I'd hate to accidentally have two skinks of the same sex in the enclosure...just thought it'd be better for him to have a friend. Do skinks even care about that or are they happy to be totally alone?

    They are not communal animals. They do not need, nor want, a friend.
