Eastern Bluey

Photographed in situ [1]

An eastern bluey (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides) enjoys one of the last warm and sunny days of summer — above shot in situ. Like all blue-tongued skinks, they repeatedly stick out and flatten their blue tongues in response to a threat. Check out my video of deimatic behavior in a northern bluey here: https://youtu.be/SIzs6-bRfZE.
