In Sarawak, Malaysia, the live-bearing scincid lizard, Eutropis multifasciata has a prolonged reproductive cycle in which males exhibited year round sperm production and females were reproductively active in all months examined except in September (n=1) and November (n=1). Mean litter size was 3.8±0.84 (1SD, range=3–5, n=5). There was no evidence to suggest females produced consecutive litters in the same year. Other skinks from Malaysia have also been shown to exhibit prolonged reproductive cycles.
