Eutropis rudis — Brown Mabuya
Also known as:
Rough Mabuya, Rough-scaled Brown Skink
I think various details of this skink identify it as Eutropis rudis rather than the extremely common and widespread Eutropis multifasciata, but I didn't get any absolutely conclusive photos.
The crimson throats of adult males make identification easy. Younger males and females have a more generic skinky look that can be difficult to distinguish from Eutropis multifasciata.
Another easily recognizable adult male, though this one was considerably more wary.
