Blue Tongues


My kids love lizards.  Especially Kane.  If there is a frog,  or a lizard anywhere he will find it.  We don't usually have these Blue Tongues at our house as we live in town,  but luckily on a large block with lots of great habitat areas for wildlife.


Matt's pics with the good camera :)
This one had a bit of a run in with the lawn mower and lost the tip of his tail.  We kept him inside in a fish tank and fed him snails while it healed - he did escape for a day though,  and we found him curled up between Maya's bed and her dolls house ... on the new carpet'


Matt released him today.  It was beautiful and warm and the kids didn't want him to go.  I'm sure Kane will catch him again sometime though.

Oh how lovely that you were able to help him while he healed. We usually seem to have a bluetongue lurking around the yard somewhere. I love them!

I was so sure that this post would be full of pictures of cute kids who had just eaten blue popsicles. I had never heard of bluetongue lizard before. Must be one of those Aussie things.....
