BiologyLittle is known about the biology of McGregor's skink, though it is likely that, like other skinks, it feeds mainly on insects (5) (9). Individuals are usually active in the early morning and late evening (7), and may be quite aggressive in defence of preferred sites (4). McGregor's skink is ovoviviparous, meaning the developing eggs hatch inside the female, the female then giving birth to live young. Usually only two young are born at a time, in late summer or early autumn (February to March). McGregor's skink takes up to four or five years to reach adult size, and may live for over ten years (4).
