Chasing The Emerald Tree Skink

I was busy luxuriating in the natural beauty of the panoramic Mount Isarog in front of our house at Sagrada Familia, Pili, Camarines Sur, when I happened to see this “green” skink (Scientific Name: Lamprolepis smaragdina) coming out from the hollow of our tamarind tree. He told me he wanted to play by letting me chase him so I gave in.

Sometimes, all it takes is to devote a little time to discover the beauty and joy out of simple things the Aura up there created like the skink that I had ignored for quite sometime now. I’m glad I did! I really had fun chasing the skink.

“It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary; only wise men are able to understand them” (Paulo Coelho).

  1. Is Salamander the same as Gecko? If so, you can sell it at high price! Just kidding. I pity those gecko creatures. They’ll soon become extinct if this “Gecko” mania won’t stop.


  2. Great pics and thanks for sharing. Now I know that a salamander is actually an amphibian and not a reptile.

    From the link you provided above I can see there are many species of them but I like the one on your post more.

    Your place looks cool… 🙂
