Blue-tongued skinks are bred in captivity and can make good pets. A prominent characteristic of the genus is a large blue tongue that can be bared as a bluff-warning to potential enemies. All species are found on mainland Australia with the exception of Tiliqua gigas (pictured here), which occurs in New Guinea and various islands of Indonesia. They are relatively large lizards (up to 45 cm total length), light-bodied, short-limbed, broad with distinct heads and dull teeth. They feed on a wide variety of insects, gastropods, flowers, fruits and berries. We are for sale in Other Exotics.
