Are you sure that it is a skink? I have never heard of such a small skink like that. Skinks have no legs and look more like snakes than lizards but scientifically they are lizards. They are usually much longer (anywhere from about 3-6 inches). If it is a skink than I would assume that it eats small insects. Try looking it up online but make sure that you do have a skink and not something else.
