Normal 5-striped skinks aren't easy pets. They are difficult to catch, and if you do it incorrectly their tail will fall off in self-defence. Feeding them live bugs will also be a bitch.
Although you can try; good thing you will eventually be releasing them.

Dunno how much their tail takes to regenerate when it falls off, but it definetely does grow a new one back.
