Australia has several species of Blue Tongue, the Common Blue Tongue is the most frequently encountered by people and is one of the most iconic Australian reptiles. Their most prominent feature is their large blue tongue that can be bared as a bluff-warning to potential enemies. They are relatively shy in comparison with other lizards and also significantly slower due to their short legs.
