One day last week, I read a post from the ever refreshing Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge; and somehow the subject of lizards cropped up, I happened to mention my old family of ‘Blue Tongues” when I was living up on the Northern Beaches; you all/y’all know how I ramble on; and as usual opened my mouth, well in this case opened up that somewhere I had some photos I’d taken of them.
Well Phil of the mouse, said that she couldn’t wait to see them, well not exactly; her words were, “Want to see that baby”!
So what could I do but go in search of the pictures I’d taken.
Was quite a task, as you might imagine, after blowing up my old faithful steam driven ASUS so much stuff got lost/mislaid/misplaced (covers just about everything) but I knew that somewhere in cyberspace/computer land I had a picture of my old blue tongue lizards.
After much effort I managed to find one, yes, just one photo of my lovely old family of three beautiful blue tongue lizards and here she or he is …….
this one was about 35-40 cm in length (14”-16”approx) and liked to nestle close to the fence, where it could get some sun and also some tucker. Another favourite spot was just inside the laundry door, but I won’t bore you with that.
If you’ve got blue tongues in your garden , you haven’t got snails and other nasties, they gobble them all up, they’re also fond of over ripe bananas peaches et al.
So for Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge heres the picture, I’m sorry he/she is not poking it’s beautiful blue tongue out at you, I’m sure you’d have loved that 😀
