Its ultramarine, if you ask me.

  • "It's ultramarine, if you ask me."

This blue-tongued skink is up for adoption at the Colorado Reptile Humane Society. In an e-mail blast from the Longmont nonprofit, this breed of skink is praised for being a good option for people with pet allergies and, since they have smooth skin, easy to handle. What's more, CoRHS writes, "These gentle lizards adapt well to life in captivity and most seem to enjoy human interaction. They are thought to be one of the more intelligent lizards as shown by their ability to recognize people and sounds."

For more information on this skink's housing and care requirements, visit This skink's adoption fee is $10, but CoHRS will waive it for approved adopters through the end of March.
