Allow me to introduce you to the Red-eyed Crocodile Skink. Since these guys were recently discovered (mid to late nineties), there isn’t a whole lot that is known about them, but I’ll share a few facts with you here. 
These guys can grow up to ten inches in length, though the average is more like seven.
They’re pretty shy and choose to play dead as their defense mechanism. 
Other than geckos, these guys are one of the only lizards that vocalize. Their sound is described as a barking noise when they’re in distress
Average lifespan is listed at around 6 years
