Reptilian import

Simon from the Gower Bird Hospital sent me this photo today of what appears to be a skink, brought in from South Cornelly. Apparently it's most likely to be of South African origin (found with imported goods) and looks like photos on the web of the Striped Skink (Trachylepis striata). If anyone can help with this rather tentative identification we'd be interested to hear from you.

Maybe it is a Large Psammodromus? (Psammodromus Algirus)
