At A Glance

The locations in the badges are the biomes where we’ve met them (and where we think you’ll be most likely to come across them). That doesn’t mean they don’t hang out in other places.

Five-Lined Skinks

You'll meet these fiesty little skinks wherever you look near bushes...especially if those bushes are near standing water.

Little Brown Skinks

We find these little camo animals in dry areas near swamps. Like their legless penny-colored relatives, they're often on (or under) pine straw.

Eastern Fence Lizards

You can meet these lizards throughout North Louisiana year round. You'll most likely find these little guys and gals at Corney Lake or the Hummingbird and Butterfly Garden in Kisatchie.

You'll meet this skink on rotten logs and in deep brushy forested areas near water (so basically the entirety of North Louisiana is potential habitat for them).
