Cody's Cricket Method for Luring Skinks

Works like a charm - most of the time! ;). Cody also has a noose tied onto the end of the fishing pole in case you want to switch methods. He says the best way is to get them to jump at the cricket so that they aren't gripping to anything (like a tree trunk). So, he recommends luring them down off the tree onto the leaf litter, where they really don't have much to grip onto. Key partner tool is the bucket into which you place the skink once you have hooked it. (Note: we put the skinks into separate bags: they are shown side by side here in a bucket to show possible different sexes.)
