Sandfish skinks grow to be 7-8 inches (17- 20cm) and have a life span of 8 years. They are insectivores so will only eat insects such as crickets, locusts and cockroaches with a water bowl also being provided, big enough to fit themselves in so they are able to soak to cool down and help shedding skin. Insects should be dusted in calcium powder such as Reptile Supplies Calcium Powder, this will help with healthy growth. Sandfish should have a basking spot of 95 Fahrenheit (35 Celsius) with humidity levels being kept below 30% as well as 10% UVB.
