Blue-tongued skink

Tiliqua gigas ssp.


-up to about 12" long from head to tail -very big body in comparison to small, thin legs -note the distinctive pinkish nose -tongue is purple-ish blue


found it in a garage of one of our neighbors, so we took it out in a bucket. It probably came from the jungle-like patch of land behind their house: lots of shade and hiding places, some water here and there. that's where we set it free.


makes hissing sounds when threatened
