New Zealand skinks are quite unique, but skinks are world-wide. They live in all sorts of different habitats. They can be found on mountaintops – well, not right at the top, but close to the top of mountains – and they can be found down near the shore, they are found in forests and in open grasslands. They are found pretty much everywhere. But New Zealand skinks are quite unique.
