A common sight in many suburban backyards, blue tongues are great for controlling pests like snails. Wild blue tongues will make their homes in yards with both hiding places and sunny basking sites. While blue tongues can be kept as pets, like all native reptiles, they are protected in New South Wales and to keep one a a pet you must have a Reptile Keepers Licence. Their short legs make them significantly slower than most of the other lizards in the suburbs.
