We find lots of these little characters in summer only a day or two old. Note the size against the leaf and gum tree fruits around him. They grow to approximately 70cm from nose to tip of tail with a large prickly collar around the back of head & that stands up when they feel threatened. The big ones love to sun themselves on fences, rocks, the gate wherever they can enjoy the heat. We find the young ones in the rockery and in the leaf litter around our garden, haven’t managed to capture the true native Blue Tongue’s yet.
