  •  we have skinks here too (7+ / 0-)

    Five-lined skinks, mostly.  They have blue tails when young, and the females often keep their blue tails in adulthood.

    I don't know if any non-native skins have become established here, but why not--we have virtually everything else.  ;)

    Our basic problem is that Florida (especially Miami and Tampa Bay) is the hub for exotic animals coming into the US from all over the world, so anything that escapes is likely to at least give a go at becoming established.

    In the end, reality always wins.
