Hematologic and selected plasma chemistry values were determined for the prehensile-tailed skink (Corucia zebrata). The heterophil has an unlobed nucleus in contrast to other skink species that reportedly have heterophils with segmented nuclei. Glucose, calcium, sodium, and chloride levels were higher than values reported for other reptiles with similar dietary habits. Other parameter values were consistent with those reported for other reptilian species.
