The other day our little dog Ben was barking down the back yard. I thought he had seen a snake but upon closer inspection he had found this young Blue-tongue. Every time it would stick out its' tongue he would bark at it. Every time I tried to take a photo hoping to get the tongue sticking out it would stay still, and when I moved to get closer it would stick it out at me. I think they say not to work with children or animals.
