Blue Tongued Skink, Tilqua gigasBlue Tongued Skinks, Tilqua gigas, are native to Australia. They are omnivorous animals, allowing them to have wide flexibility when looking for meal. They give birth to live young, with litters of babies reaching over 15 in number. When threatened, they flatten out their tongues and flash them as a warning.
