(Tiliqua scincoides scincoides)

Keep an eye out in your garden for the friendly Blue Tongue Lizard. The male lizard has a proportionally larger head than the female. The females are bigger overall, but they both have vivid blue tongues.

They usually produce from 10 to 25 live young between December and January, once every one or two years.

They are not fussy eaters but are very partial to slugs and snails. Sadly, sometimes Blue Tongues are killed by eating those that have been poisoned by snail bait.

The provision of undergrowth and empty logs provide them with shelter.
