From Wikipedia
Skinks look roughly like true lizards, but most species have no pronounced neck and their legs are relatively small; several genera (e.g., Typhlosaurus) have no limbs at all. Some other genera, such as Neoseps, have reduced limbs, lacking forelegs, and with fewer than five toes (digits) on each foot.
Most species of skinks have long, tapering tails they can shed if a predator grabs the tail. Such species generally can regenerate the lost part of a tail, though imperfectly. Species with stumpy tails have no special regenerative abilities.

The common species in Thailand and probably the one showing here is Eutropis multifasciata(East Indian brown mabuya, Many-lined sun skink, Many-striped skink, Common sun skink, Golden skink,จิ้งเหลนบ้าน)
