Only they best for Galileo. I read that fuzzy mice are a lot better than pints because the fuzzys bones are more developed therefore there is more calcium then fat. Bring on the hate
Say you're a blotched blue-tongue skink (Tiliqua nigrolutea), and you want to scare a predator away. What to do? These lizards open their bright pink mouths wide, hiss, and stick out their big blue tongues in an impressive defensive display. This species, which is native to Australia, has also adapted to living in suburban backyards, where they help out by eating pests like snails and even rodents.

Amicus Ardor (the Arrowhead) who catched the world's light and with a copper shine gives it back.
P.S. I have received private questions regarding the sexual dimorphism in Amispecies. This boy is an ideal example of a Tiliqua scincoides male (Indonesian cousins are included): wide head due to strong jaw muscles being a visibly separated element from the rest of his physicality. Also the ♂️ have shorter trunk length in comparison to the female (which has to develop even up to more than 20 specimens of offspring).
The thick tail's base should not be considered for an masculine indicator as it is an area of adipose tissue present in rather vital specimens of both sexes even though the male's hemipenises.
There are also other factors in determining gender yet too subtle to be so significant.
In conclusion, the biggest part of recognition is the ▶ triangular head in males HOWEVER what cannot be excluded is the fact that morphologically, there occur male-like females as well as feminine males.
❗ P.P.S. Although a thick base of tail is a first glance sign of health, there are still circumstances of illness and/or parasites in the lizards with such proper and strong trait.
P.P.P.S. Amicus' tail is directed back on this capture so its thickness isn't presented but this place of lipid storage (strong, fat tail) can be seen in other photographs or videos of his.
❗ Pre last P.S. Please, do not make the invasive sexing in the veterinarian offices. Instead, consider a flashlight method or just waiting.
Last P.S. The hemipenis's ecdysis and stricte unsexual but physiological emptying the testis of semen are obviously equalling a ♂️.
Post P.S. No filter but the UV touch.
