Today I was speaking with my Hellotalk friend on the phone andthen my Mum calls me to look come outside.
There outside is a big blue neck lizard! 🦎💙
It was in the garden basking in the sun. 🌞 Foraging for insects and bugs. Often they eat snakes and are not prone to attacking humans.
The Blue tongue is usually quite placid, timid reptiles. They will often scurry away if they feel vulnerable or under attack but other times they will stand their ground! 🦎
I remember seeing a cute one as a child. I wanted to pick it up. But when I approached it, it got angry, and went into defensive mode. It began to splay itself out by flattening its body. It almost increase its body size by double.
Another memory I had was they used to sit on the beanbag in our garage. I would often pick snails off the garden wall and attach them to a stick then take them to the Blue tongue lizard for a snack. 🤭😝😝🍡
