|Action: changed name from "Eumeces obsoletus" to "Eumeces fasciatus
| ||"This is a five-lined skink (most likely an adult female), because of the conspicuous longitudinal stripes down the body and the gray tail. Eumeces obsoletus tends to have a more uniform coloration overall; stripes are rare and occur only when the brown or black edging of the light tan scales lines up. Then the stripes are numerous and thin, not wide and distinct as in the five-lined skink above.|
