I was stumped!! by gilbertwood

I was stumped!!

After some thought I investigated this lizard and have decided it is a "stumpy tailed" or shingleback lizard and NOT a blue tongue! I was told it was a blue tongue and never queried it, but always wondered about it's stumpy tail, which can look like it's head to confuse predators - and now me!! B T lizards have quite a pointy tail. Sorry for the confusion :) Now I'm off to Melbourne with a clearer mind, yet again!
Gee it’s so far from his front legs to his back legs and yes his tail is stumpy! A very cool lizard and I love the little boy holding him and not being afraid. Good for him.

I did wonder about the shingleback bit, but the thought just went in one ear and out the other. Cute anyway.

I can relate. I often get on a quest to identify something just right.

Must admit I wondered as well as he is very different to our Blueys. A beauty indeed :)
