Hello Scaly

This is our resident blue-tongue lizard. Isn’t she a stunner? (We think it’s a female – the female’s tale is narrower than the male’s, apparently). She’s been hanging out in the gap between our driveway and the neighbours’ property, but we’ve seen her popping up from time to time, hopefully to eat some of the less welcome garden residents. Blue-tongues eat slugs, snails and the like. Useful really, so I hope she stays around for a while.

I’ve been doing a bit of blue-tongue ‘research’ (aka Googling), and this site says breeding season is between September and November. We could have babies in a few months! We’ll have to keep an eye on her. (And hope next door’s cat doesn’t!)
