Whilst you cant see the blue tongue. This pic has a story. I am inside trying to study and my golden retriever is outside barking madly and I thought “shut up you……blah blah” anyway I finally gave up went outside to find him barking at this. So I ran inside grabbed camera, tried to get the lizard to poke his tongue out, I got a blurry version of the blue tongue, but I think the lizard was happy that I had shut the dog up!. Also laying on the ground taking a pic I was wondering how fast do these things run???? lol

Thats all…….

    Know what you mean about the yapping. My tenterfield terrier was doing that exact same thing today for the exact same reason.

  • LOL…must have been a reptile day!

    A very cool photo Judith, and an awesome feature. I love these guys. Most think that they just dawdle along, but they can move like lightning when they want to. Congratulations :-)

  • I am glad I didnt know how fast they could move when I was laying on the ground taking the picture!..lol

    I think they’re pretty placid most of the time, but I accidentally spooked one once. It shot off like lightning, and I went vertically airborne. I don’t know who got the biggest fright. I reckon it was me :-)

  • Glad I only know this now…mind you they are quite small…….LOL……
