We have a pair!



I thought we only had one blue tongue but I just looked outside a few minutes ago and had a pleasant surprise - apparently we have a pair! How exciting!

My god they look healthy don't they!!!! I wonder when your baby lizards will make an appearance. How lovely. I bet Billy is in seventh heaven. Lisa x

What exactly are they? They look like miniature dragons... um... komodo... I know I'm not spelling that right.

They look so cool - are they safe? :)

I have no idea what relationship they are! From what I've been reading, baby blue tongues are out foraging this time of year so maybe they're babies?

Mrs P - they're blue-tongue lizards. Not really dangerous, but will clamp on with their jaws if attacked. It's a sign of a healthy garden if you have them which is why I'm so excited!
