CB18 baby blue tongue skinks

(Tiliqua gigas gigas)

£165

Really tame and handleable. Showing some stunning colouration

The total length of an adult usually ranges between 18 and 24 inches.

Kept properly, blue-tongued skinks can live for 15 to 20 years, and possibly longer.

?Blue-tongued skinks are terrestrial and prefer floor space over climbing area. Include cork bark, Mopani wood, logs, large rocks and hides
At this age a 3ft vivarium would provide a good sized environment until grown on.

?Ambient temperatures on the cool side from 75 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The warm end should include a basking area of 90 to 100 degrees. This can be accomplished using overhead basking light or ceramic heat emitter controlled by a suitable thermostat

?We recommend using a quality strip UVB lighting rig . The UVB lights should be on eight to 12 hours a day which is beneficial to blue-tongued skinks

?Blue-tongued skinks are extremely hardy lizards that will thrive on just about any diet, but a well-balanced diet will result in a more active, healthier blue-tongued skink. They are omnivorous and should be fed a combination of proteins, vegetables/greens and fruits as well as protein such as live food, hard-boiled and raw eggs, boiled chicken, ground turkey mince and pinky mice. A quality vitamin/calcium supplement with vitamin D3 is important and should be used 2 to 3 times a week

Range of suitable setup and equipment available in store also. Complete kits available from £300
