what's in a name?

Yep these are called blue-tongue lizard - a type of skink.

This lovely fella is about 2 feet long and has moved into the garden just at the front of the house so I'm getting to see him/her a lot which is making me very happy!
thank you for the many comments on my photos, so glad you are enjoying some Australiana
Wow, glad we don't have those over here. My wife would really freak out over one of those. Great capture.

@rickster549 oh no they are gorgeous - very slow moving and gentle, very popular with children :) I forgot to add the bit of video which shows how slow they are

I really like that you have captured the blue tongue itself as that is very hard to see.

@fr1da thanks, I was determined and so had to follow him about the gravel driveway for quite a while to get this shot! :) persistence paid off in the end
