It’s wild in the ‘burbs

As Autumn slowly morphs into what passes for Winter in the sub-tropics, some of the local residents indulge in a little sunbaking in the garden.

This blue tongued  shingle-backed lizard travels between my neighbour’s and my gardens free from any hassle.
About 30 cm long,it’s main form of defence is to puff itself up and hiss/huff at the intruder (me)

At least,while ‘he’ is in residence the insect population and snails and slugs will be reduced in numbers

  1. What a beautiful lizard, we have quite a few blue tongues at our place. When the children were young they came screaming in to say there was a snake, they just saw it’s head, but when I went to investigate it was a juvenile lizard.
