Here we evaluate monthly and daily activity patterns of Neoseps Reynoldsi (Sand Skink), through examination of museum specimens and population studies at Archb old Biological Station (ABS), Highlands County, FL, and in Ocala National Forest (ONF), Marion County, FL. Sand Skinks are active throughout the year, with highest captures in February through May, and August through October. Museum specimen data suggest a peak in December, but this reflects collector bias. Number of captures is significantly negatively related to precipitation and positively related to temperature for Sand Skinks at ABS, but this relationship is due to capture of hatchlings from July through October. At ONF, no relationship between temperature and precipitation and number of captures exists. The number of Sand Skink tracks per day at ABS is not related to temperature, but is significantly negatively related to precipitation.
