What do you feed a baby skink?

If you meant the lizard like animal, then they are carnivores. Thus they mostly eat insects like grasshoppers, crickets, beetles, and caterpillars. They also eat earthworms, snails, and slugs. Those that are kept as household pets can have a diet of 60% vegetables/leaves/fruit and 40% meat or meat products (like dog or cat food) daily. So, you could feed it a simpler meal of this, like small leaves that are not too thick so it can be easily digested.
