Da Plant Man That video is HILARIOUS! I think you should submit it to America's funniest home videos.

I want a blue tongued skink now. Here in WA, I have seen a blue tailed skink, so I must have seen his opposite.

I don't think he was cheating by pushing to the counter and trying that way

razalas5 I love blue tongued skinks almost as much as bearded dragons.
They're very fun to watch and yours is beautiful!

Haha yea its pathetically funny!

I eventually cracked the egg into a bowl for him....unfortunately he's so short I had to give him a ramp made out of a towel just so he could get his head into the bowl, lol...

And because I know you're all just so interested, here's an interesting look into the biology of the skinks digestive system I love his face, haha,....puuusssshhhhhhh!......

TickleMyElmo Well, I actually had time to take some pics of the skink today, so yea...

He wasn't actually angry, he was just yawning, but it sure does look like he was angry! lol...

Blue Tongued Skink






Tank in the background lol....






"Forget this, I'm going back to my tank!"


And a very special video treat! My skink's favorite food is eggs, but unfortunately, he's not very good at catching them....hilarity ensues lol....It's in 1080p HD, but it's long so you might not be able to load it in HD depending on your computer...

Captivate05 Beautiful! I love snakes and reptiles and all those wonderful things that girls are supposed to hate.

I tried to find the picture I took of my Redtail boa (Hollywood) when I guess she didn't want a photo taken. She snapped at the camera just as I took the picture, and I got a good shot of the inside of her mouth. I think it's on my dead laptop though

Hollywood has such an aggressive attitude, no idea where it came from, and sometimes she'll act without warning. Other times she'll "hiss" (I'd call it growl, certainly doesn't sound much like a hiss to me),coil, or act tense. Over all, she only liked my fiance before she moved in with my friend, who is one of the only people I know who knows how to care for a large, aggressive snake. Or would want to, for that matter.

These have always been one of my favourite animals, super random with the blue tongue, ha.
this is exactly what i thought

Do you have the shingle back skink over there? they are closely related, they have the same blue tongue, but i think they are a cooler lizard and a little less common in the wild here
Yeah, thats gotta be funny seeing them kept as pets when theyre native to your area haha....and nope, never been bitten. He's very tame and docile. If you annoy him he just goes to sleep. I've tried tapping my finger near his mouth and poking him in his head to see how he would be with kids, etc, and all he does is closes his eyes and goes to sleep....he doesnt even bother walking away lol...They do have a strong jaw though, I've heard they can crack walnuts with it lol....

Some people do have shinglebacks, but they aren't sold in most stores....most people get them specifically by request from a breeder
