Artist's Description

The vivid blue tongue of the shingleback (Tiliqua rugosa or Trachydosaurus rugosus) aka bogeye, bobtail, sleepy lizard, stumpy tail lizard etc etc. These lizards are widespread across across arid and semi-arid Australia hence why it has so many common names.

They are live-bearing lizards that give birth to 1-2 young of considerable size which gives the babies the best head start in a harsh environment. They mate for life however only usually seek out their mate during the breeding season. They store fat in their large bulbous tails to help them through the tough times.

This was taken in a nature reserve in western New South Wales, Australia
