Skinks in the wild eat anything that walks or flies by as long as they can fit it into their mouths. Avoid caterpillars, spiders, wasps and bees. Somehow in the wild they avoid the poisonous ones, captive ones might eat them and get sick . I raised them on meal worms and crickets dusted with "Herptivite brand Multivitamins and Calcium" I'm sure others would work just as well, also would give them canned Monitor/ Tegu food as a treat, they'd really enjoy it. Feed them until they are full every 2 days or so. You will be able to see them looking around for more if they are getting really hungry.
