    A rare and unusual lizard has been bred at Paignton Zoo for the first time.

    The Solomon Islands skink is one of the few reptiles known to live in a social group.

    It also gives birth rather than lays eggs - another unusual trait.

    Keeper Dr Katy Upton said it is a "great achievement".
