The Pink Tongue Skink

The pink tongue skink is very similar looking to a blue tongue, although their tongues are different colours and the pink tongue is more active at night and is a climber. Its tail is very long compared to a blue tongue. He varies a lot in colours and he is also famous for folk thinking they have a snake in the roof as these guys get up and run amuk under your insulation. They also will defend themselves with a bite but are not venomous. The blunt teeth will still hurt as they have very powerful jaws. They also eat snails and slugs and won’t hesitate to hi-jack the cat food. The pink tongue skink grows to a length of 30cm max.
