When I was a child, one of the scariest creature to me was the 'snake lizard. ' I always ran when I saw one in my backyard.
This was because I thought this creature was dangerous to human beings. I also thought it carried poisonous substances.
I was wrong about everything!
First of all, the name of this creature is not "Snake Lizard. " They are actually called Skinks.
Secondly, Skinks are not dangerous at all. Although, they can bite but their bites can cause no harm at all.
I am sure that most of you(my readers) must have come across this creature. Well, if you were like the little me who was scared of this creature, then worry no more!
Another great fact about Skinks is that they are really great reptile pets. This is because they can help in killing household insects in the home.
