The Bartle frere skink (Techmarscincus jigurru) is a rare and endangered skink lizard first discovered in 1981. This skink is agile and energetic. It has a rainbow sheen color. Their bodies are long and flat with short limbs and a very long tail. The Bartle Frere is only seen out and basking during the day. A night, the skink retreats back into the cracks in the exposed granite. The bartle frere skink tolerates juveniles in the same area, as most skinks do not.
