Hi, I’m Toothless

Hi my name is Toothless and I'm a really cool Cunningham's Spiny-tailed Skink. We come from a belt running from the eastern Queensland and New South Wales boarder all the way to the south-central Victorian coast!

My species is known for not being very hand friendly, and I am no different. I much prefer being left alone to chill out in my enclosure! I didn't get the best start before arriving at RSPCA, so my tail and a few fingers look a bit different. My tail is already growing back after my surgery, but unfortunately, I am missing some fingers.

I require a few things in my new home that are important to maintain my happiness and health. These include a good quality UV light, heat lamp, hides and water bowl. I am omnivorous, so I like eating vegetables, crickets and woodies.

If you think I might be the right pet for you, please fill out an adoption application today! https://www.rspcaqld.org.au/expression-of-interest-to-adopt

Adoption Price: $100
