Another Tourist Attraction For Allora

A local lizard lover has been keeping a watchful eye on a lounge of Cunningham Skinks in Muir Street at Allora.

These lizards will remain safe from any harm as they disappear in a flash if danger comes close. So look but don’t try to touch!

The Australian Museum has provided information on the Cunningham Skinks (Egernia cunninghami).

The species is named in honor of Alan Cunningham, explorer and botanist, who collected the first specimen in the Blue Mountains.

The skink has a long tail with keeled scales along its dorsal surface from the back of the neck down to the tip of the pointed tail.

The legs are quite short, requiring the lizard to slide on its belly when it moves around.
