Just passing through...


A couple of interesting visitors passed through today.

Not sure if they are a couple, but the one behind was very keen to follow the one in front...

We have had quite a few of these Shingleback Lizards around this year. They are pretty big ones too.

  1. They're beautiful.

    I used to get 3 Blue tongues outside my flat door here in the suburbs - buy sadly no longer. I was told 3 years ago the cane toads would wipe them out within 5 yrs in nature. Well it seems that info may have been right. Terrible.

    I try and freeze all the cane toads from my yard. 3 years ago there were none. Now I see them regularly and increasing in numbers :-(

  6. We would call those a "bobtail". And we have lots of them too. They are supposed to keep snakes away as apparently they eat their eggs.....

  10. I think I love 'sleepy' lizards because they are so harmless. I nearly stepped on a Blue Tongue the other day as he disappeared under a daisy bush in my back yard! Yikes, gave me a fright for a minute!
    Although we live on 2.5 acres, we have never, touch wood, seen a snake here yet! Do the lizards keep them away?

  11. Your lucky to have them visit in your garden Tania. You must have a nice habitat for them.
    We have bearded dragons in our garden from the incy wincy only 5cm long ones to the big granddaddies.
    We get the occasional Blue Tongues as well but unfortunately our Red Cattle Dog will kill them. He never touches anything other than snakes or Blue Tongues Funny that!
