Each summer we are blessed to have the occational Blue Tongued Lizards wandering around the nursery.
These large lizards (up to 45cm) are gentle and timid beauties.
They only appear on warm to hot days and usually between 10am and 4 pm.
We had a nasty hot one here yesterday 23.01.2017 of 38.c (104.F)
Our regular mate "Bluey" decided to do a lap of the car park and no cars came thank goodness.
Although they can shuffle pretty fast when they have too.
A little later in the day he gave me a fright as he scuttled around inside the building.
Just for a second that fat body and tiger stripes screemed snake to me ,but only for a second.
I fed him a little cube of plum,apricot ,lychee and banana and off he trondled.
