Look at this small, shy reptile we found peeking out from the gap between two hardwood sleepers. On closer inspection, after a check that he or she did indeed have legs, it was decided that this must be a young Blue-tongue Lizard.
A young Blue-tongue Lizard peeks out from his hiding spot.
A while ago, our young son discovered a scaly and very well-nourished adult Blue-tongue whom he promptly christened Bluey. Upon this latest discovery, it was very quickly decided that this must be one of Bluey's babies.
Our boy took these photos of Baby Bluey watching us from his cosy hiding space. How lovely to have a family of these interesting reptiles in our garden for us to observe and learn about...and to photograph!
