$350.00

You should ensure food is available during their most active time period, so being crepuscular that active time period would be during dusk and dawn. They will eat a variety of insects, grub worms, mealworms and earthworms. Favored are soft-bodied insects such as crickets and roaches. It would be ideal to dust insects and worms with reptilian vitamins and mineral supplement powders like D-3 and calcium. Along with these vitamins and proper lighting, this ensures resistance toward metabolic bone disease (MTB).  if you have mating skink pairs then introduce a single male, aggression will occur if you keep more than one male red eyed crocodile skink in a single tank

Are Red Eyed Crocodile Skinks good pets?

 

 

Red Eyed Crocodile Skink Hatching

Well, first of all, let’s understand the red-eyed crocodile skink’s natural habitat. Species of this lizard are endemic to tropical islands where the mean temperature range is in daytime highs of 81 F/27.2 C and 73 F/27.8 C nighttime lows.
 

With that in mind, be sure to set up a terrarium that meets these temperature ranges with an adjustable heater.

Also, fresh water should be easily available and accessible to drink as they are usually found near some form of a water source.
 

You should have a hygrometer inside your tank to check for relative humidity as their natural habitat is rarely below 70 percent.

The water source along with the heated terrarium should be sufficient enough to make the terrarium’s ambient environment maintain that humidity goal.

The substrate should be soil (~ 6 inches) covered with forest debris (leaves, small twigs, small rocks, etc.) covering the soil. Within the soil mix it up with grainy sand or small pebbles to induce evaporation, for if the soil remains damp, mold could possibly form from spores.

If you have access to sphagnum moss, it will act as a wicking layer bringing moisture up to the surface to evaporate. As well, if you first lay down hydroponic clay it will block moisture from seeping to the bottom and sitting allowing the sphagnum to wick the water up to the surface.

I would suppose that the best lighting would be a 13 watt fluorescent light. If your terrarium is large, then perhaps two lights would be necessary for daytime usage. I say daytime because red-eyed crocodile skinks are crepuscular meaning they are most active during twilight hours (dusk/dawn).

Therefore the lighting should be minimal at dusk and dawn, while fully on during the day and fully off during the night. Although they might come out during the darkest hours or brightest hours, normally they will retreat into a place where they feel secure.
