Sri Lankan Bronze Skink (Eutropis madaraszi)
We toured Yala National Park, as so many people do, in a 4WD jeep rather than on foot. Elephants and leopards and such, you know. So I didn't get very many pictures of herps from Yala, but I managed to get this one of what I assumed was the same widespread and common skink species that I had been seeing elsewhere in Sri Lanka.

What I didn't know at the time was that a 2016 paper had split up that formerly widespread and common species into three. This ended up being the only photo I got of the newly-redefined Eutropis madaraszi.
