Caption

Blotched blue-tongued skink (Tiliqua nigrolutea). This herbivorous lizard is found in open woodlands as well as tropical and agricultural areas of Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea. It can measure up to 45 centimetres in length. When threatened, it will hiss and open its mouth to reveal its blue tongue. Skinks are usually solitary animals and are only active during the warmer months. Mating occurs during November and December, with females only reproducing every second year. Photographed in Victoria, Australia in February.
