Solomon Islands skink (prehensile-tailed skink)
Alexandra B. from Cleveland captured the Zoo's 20-year-old Solomon Islands skink. The skink is one of only five animals living in The RainForest since opening day in 1992. The other long-time residents include a scarlet macaw and three roseate spoonbills.
