Blue-tongued skinks comprise the Australasian genus Tiliqua, which contains some of the largest members of the skink family (Scincidae). They are commonly called blue-tongued lizards or simply blue-tongues or blueys in Australia. As suggested by these common names, a prominent characteristic of the genus is a large blue tongue that can be bared as a bluff-warning to potential enemies. They are relatively shy in comparison with other lizards, and also significantly slower due to their short legs.
Blue-tongued skinks are closely related to the genera Cyclodomorphus and Hemisphaeriodon. All species are found on mainland Australia with the exception of Tiliqua gigas, which occurs in New Guinea and various islands of Indonesia. One subspecies of Tiliqua scincoides is also found on several small Indonesian islands between Australia and New Guinea. Tiliqua nigrolutea is the only species present in Tasmania. With the exception of the pygmy blue-tongue, they are relatively large lizards (up to 45 cm total length), light-bodied, short-limbed, broad with distinct heads and dull teeth.
Albino blue tongues are the result of a naturally occurring mutation which causes a lack of colour pigment (melanin) in the animal’s skin. Albino blue tongues are generally completely white or yellow and sometimes have shades of lavender or purple with red eyes. They are highly sought after in the reptile hobby and Kellyville Pets has a limited number of these unique animals available from time to time. Please call our friendly reptile staff if you would like to be added to the waiting list for these lizards.
A great first pet reptile for beginners and children. Blue tongue lizards are highly interactive and interesting to watch. They are omnivorous, feeding on a range of live insects, fruits, vegetables and formulated lizard pellets. Blue tongue lizards can live for up to 15-20 years in captivity.
