Lizards at War - White's Skink, Territorial Behaviour
There are several colonies of White's Skink (Egernia whitii) in the backyard and at the moment they are displaying territorial behavior. An old battle scarred specimen known as Stumpy (no tail) seems to be the lizard king. Some lizards are chased away while in other cases it seems more about establishing the pecking order. For example the young lizard seen in the video thumbnail below only moved about a metre away and has since crossed paths with stumpy without any altercations.
