Just a note (since two posts mentioned this) that not all skinks give birth to live offspring.
Scincidae is the largest family (about 1200 species) of lizards and there are both viviparous and oviparous representatives. In fact, the majority of skinks are oviparous, representing approximately 55%; whereas, approximately 45% of skink species are viviparous.
