Blue-tongue skinks are omnivores and can feed on fruits such watermelon, melon and cantaloupe. It is important to offer watermelon cut in small pieces and de-seeded, but other than that, there are no serious health concerns of feeding melons to skinks.
That said, water melon should only be fed in moderation and in small amounts. This is because it is not very nutritious and has a high water content. Eating too much watermelon at once may have a laxative effect in blue-tongued skinks.
