Blue tongue lizard

August 23rd, 2017

I’m restarting my blog at new location here: http://mybackyard.info/mybackyard/

This last post contains some rediscovered photos and video of a mother blue tongue lizard and her 2 babies who took up residence in our garden shed back in 2012.

Eastern Blue Tongue Lizard

Scientific Name: Tiliqua scincoides

Beautiful markings on mum’s back.

Baby Bluey – I’ve read that around 10 young is the usual number born but we only found 2 in and around the shed.

Blue tongues are omnivores, eating plant material, insects and snails and slugs. I can attest to the gusto with which they devour a snail having hand feed a backyard blue tongue in the past.

Look for the famous blue tongue
