blue-tongue lizard 1

Blue tongue lizards are part of the skink family and are pretty common in most parts of Australia, in fact this one is called the Common Eastern Blue-tongued Lizard. They are docile and friendly and this very pregnant female had no qualms about approaching the family as we sat in the shade of a pandanus tree at Serenity Beach. I think she was attracted by the food as we were eating rice cakes and she walked right into our midst where she sat on a vacated towel and proceeded to eat up any scraps the grand-kids had dropped. How can you not adore that neat little foot with the lovely pattern.

    Beautiful! Somehow it reminds me a blue indigo snake even they those snakes are solid blue.

    She’s beautiful! I know this has nothing to do with it but I thought it’s kind of odd and very random but figure I’ll share anyway… Right before I saw this post I got a call from one of my friends that Piggy had died. Piggy was his blue tongued skink that he had for like 3+ years.
