Blue tongue skinks can be found roaming the tropical forests of New Guinea, Indonesia, and Australia. It is essential when living in captivity that their natural habitat is mimicked as much as possible to ensure you provide a healthy environment that allows normal behaviors while reducing the risk of injury.
Blue Tongue Skink
Blue tongue skinks are very active reptiles that spend a large portfolio on their day basking and searching for food. They also have a burrowing nature, which is why you want to provide them with hides. You will need a cool and a warm hide, somewhere your skink can go if they feel insecure or vulnerable, a place to sleep and feel secure.
Morphs (sometimes called phases) are very popular in the reptile world. This is when a lizard is different from the parents due to altered DNA and genes. The majority of morphs are bred, but morphs do occur naturally as well. Altering the DNA and genes results in offspring that are a mutation, changing skin colors, patterns and behaviors.
