Merrimac

Merrimac Blue-tongued LizardThere are times when we receive calls regarding snakeswhich on arrival, turn out to be not a snake but in fact a lizard. Blue-tongued Lizards are often mistaken as snakes, much like this specimen seen in Merrimac on the Gold Coast. Our snake catcher responded to the call expecting to relocate a snake when in fact it turned out to be a feisty Blue-tongued Lizard instead. She was captured and placed in the garden of the same premises after the homeowner was assured of the harmless nature of this species.
