PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE CARIBBEAN HERPETOLOGICAL SOCIETY
There once WAS a species of skink lizard endemic to Barbados, it was found no-where else on Earth, this foreign Museum specimen was collected in 1889 - the LAST time it was seen in the wild here (in Graeme Hall Swamp). If it still exists, and we find it, we can save it from extinction...because we (the leadership of the Caribbean Herpetological Society) have our own cricket farm locally so live food is not a problem. Here is the now feared extinct Barbados Skink (Alinea lanceolata) as I am pretty sure no-one has ever seen it before (not to be confused with the Microteiid (Gymnopthalmus underwoodi) in 3rd & final pic from right below - which IS still very much alive and common on our Island and much smaller with a longer tail):
