Trachylepis affinis

T. affinis, Senegal Mabuya, is a small-bodied, common skink. Research has shown that presumably adaptive genetic variation and morphological variation in fitness traits are most divergent across the rainforest-savanna gradient. Overall, these results suggest that natural selection along this gradient may be driving genome-wide patterns of differentiation along with differences in traits that are important to fitness.
