    Over the last couple months I've seen a new skink hit the vendor tables of various shows - called Peter's Banded Skink or simply the Banded Skink (Scincopus fasciatus). They live in North Africa but beyond that I know next to nothing about them. Apparently they're so new that caresheets for them haven't appeared online yet. They certainly aren't starting to be captive bred yet, if anything.

    Does anyone happen to know anything else about them?

    Here's a picture. They look pretty cute, and from what I've seen it seems they have the potential to be good pets.

    Seen these as well. Know nothing about them but care is probably similar to Scincus scincus.
