Blue Tongue Lizard 55cm by Hansa

$85.00

Blue-tongued lizards are the largest members of the skink family. Skink lizards have overlapping scales that are usually smooth and contain small plates of bone. 

Blue-tongues usually live in open country with lots of ground cover such as tussocky grasses or leaf litter. They shelter at night among leaf litter or under large objects on the ground such as rocks and logs. Early in the morning blue-tongues emerge to bask in sunny areas before foraging for food during the warmer parts of the day. Like all lizards, blue-tongues do not produce their own body heat, and rely on the warmth of their surroundings to raise their body temperature. Blue-tongues maintain a body temperature of about 30°C - 35°C when active. During cold weather they remain inactive, buried deep in their shelter sites, but on sunny days they may emerge to bask.

The Eastern Blue-tongue occurs throughout much of New South Wales, west to about Cobar. In the Sydney region, the Eastern Blue-tongue occurs on the coastal plain and in the lower Blue Mountains.

Made in the Phillipines by skilled artisans - each piece is handcrafted and filled with recycled PR bottles made into fibre so it helps the environment.
