Another hint… scroll down to find out!

Above are the eye and cute plump forelimb of a northern blue-tongued skink (Tiliqua scincoides intermedia). The cane toads have nearly wiped them out locally since their arrival over ten years ago, and blueys are now a rare sight in the Top End. She is probably the only one I will encounter while I’m here, but it is promising to see that they are still around. Read my following post to see more photos of this beautiful sleek giant.
