I'm just getting a blue screen when I click on the video. Don't know what's wrong - I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Well, I clicked it again and it took me to Flickr and I was able to see it! So glad he left your toes alone! What fascinating creatures you have there and this one is so tame. Does he breakfast with you all on a regular basis?

Hi Jan. Yes he does come around to our back patio especially when he is hungry. He is so tame. People do buy them as pets. this one is getting quite used to us and very friendly.
He's so cute.

Oh I meant to say that if you click o the arrow on the bar it works. The arrow in the middle of the screen doesn't seem to want to work.

Oh I love that blue tongue .... was going to ask how big he is but I guess around 12" seeing him alongside your foot?

Great video

Hi Sue. yes he would be around 12 - 15" long. He is a sweetie and stayed around our place for quite a while now. I think he is a permanent resident now.

He's gorgeous. Are you planning on sketching him?

Wow!! he is so beautiful...and the tongue is so blue and pretty!! Looks like the person moved her toes just in time..LOL Besides feet, what do you feed him?

Doreen Cross said...

Pat. I do plan to sketch our Bluey. He's attached himself to us. I think he likes what we feed him.
He has wandered our garden for some time now and has decided to get brave and join us on the patio.

Hilda. He eats anything and everything. We just give him little bits of ham, he loves mushrooms. We will try some fruit next. I googled as to what they eat. They eat everything but they say only to give them 1/3 of a hand full at one time.
He is sleeping well now after a good feed yesterday. ;)

Ooooh!! Not sure I would like him nibbling at my feet while I sit on the patio. He sure has a blue tongue and he is really quite big.

Doreen Cross said...

LOl Wendy. He really is quite friendly. xx

Whatever Bluey is, he looks well looked after. And that tongue - I've not seen such a blue tongue...gorgeous. I do hope it gets featured in his portrait.

Hi Marilyn. He is a wild lizard...A blue tongue lizard. We feed him when he comes around to visit.
Some people have them as pets but when they are in the wild... we have to be careful. We love them but they have been know to have a nip at my toes and draw blood. The ones you buy from babies are tame but not these fellows. although they keep coming to visit. we do have to be a little careful.
