Hi. I am interested in possibly getting a blue tongued skink. Not any time soon of course, I would have to do lots of research on them first, and I’m sure the set up is quite expensive. Just wondering if anyone has one, and if they make good pets. Just some basic info on them. If I do get one, it will not be anytime soon, but interested in possibly getting one in the future.
Thanks for the sites! Yes they do seem to be very expensive. There was one at the pet store by my house for $100. I don’t think he liked me though, I was looking at him and he stuck out his tongue at me, and then went to the back of his tank to hide, lol.
Blue tongued skinks are commonly called blue-tongued lizards or simply blue-tongues 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. Blue-tongued skinks are bred in captivity and sold as house pets.
