Elected representatives in government are in charge of the policy and funding that can make or break saving threatened species. Their decisions and actions matter.

Forde has or used to have 21 threatened animals within its boundaries. One of them is me, the Three-toed Snake-tooth Skink.

We took care to attach appropriate images that are as close to representative of each species as our resources and the availability of images allowed. However, we could not ensure perfect accuracy in every case. Some images show species that share the same genus but not at the species or subspecies level.

Coeranoscincus reticulatus is found across 21 electorates.

The Three-toed Snake-tooth Skink has reduced limbs, each with three digits. Snout-vent length is reported as 180 mm, 195 mm and 231 mm. Two hatchlings had a SVL of 60 mm and 58 mm and a total length of 113 mm and 112 mm. Measurements of nine intact specimens had tails that were 9–45% longer than their SVL, which suggests a total length of 483–565 mm.¹
