Central portion of the state.  The southern prairie skink is found in habitats with plenty of scattered debris, such as leaf litter, boards, log piles, etc, usually near water. It has a dorso-lateral stripe that extends onto the tail, but no more than 2 scale rows wide on the tail. The dorso-lateral stripe is typically bordered above and below by a light white line, usually with a dark line above the top white line. There is typically no mid-dorsal stripe. They eat insects, spiders, snails, and slugs.
