Reptiles in Tauranga. Australian Blue Tongued Lizard

Eastern Blue Tongue Lizard (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides) Max Size:60cm Temp:25°C - 29°C Basking Temp:35°C

Very friendly lizards that tend to become very tame very quickly. Are very slow growing so can be kept in a smaller enclosure until they out grow it and can live happily for over 30 years. Bluetongues need UV light to survive, a specialty reptile light will keep your bluetongue happy and healthy. They also need to be kept warm, an enclosure temperature of around 25°C -29°C is perfect and a heated basking area sitting at around 35°C is required to keep them active. A variety of food should be supplied at around a 50/50 mix of meat and veggies. Additional Vitamin and Calcium supplements should be offered to ensure the Lizards health is optimum. We have Care sheets available on request .
