I won 2nd place at the 25th Annual Front Range Student Ecology Symposium Photo Contest!


Date: May 6, 2018Location: Cocos Island, GuamCaption: This may be a picture of the IUCN Critically Endangered Slevins Skink or Mariana Skink (Emoia slevini) on a leaf stalk of a coconut tree, which was taken on a small island off the coast of southern Guam. This skink is endemic to Guam, but has disappeared off the main island since the introduction of the brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis). This is not a confirmed photo of the skink as it is not clear whether this skink has the characteristic the checker board pattern on its back.
