A Blue Tongue Lizard

South Western Australia.

I nearly stepped on this little bloke when I was out competing in a Rogaine.
This is why he got angry, but check out the dudes camo, it’s no wonder I nearly put my foot on him lol

Yes, I was shaking !!!

    oh no, you are right, they are within the blue tongue lizard Tiliqua so are definately a ‘type’ of blue tongue.
