The Shingleback has an impressive threat display, opening its mouth wide and exposing a bright blue tongue!
The Shingleback is native to Australia and has many common names, including Bobtail, Stumpy-tailed Lizard, Pinecone Lizard, Sleepy Lizard, and Two-headed Skink (due to its short fat tail which resembles the head!)
According to one study, Shingleback skinks are generally monogamous. One pair mated for ten consecutive years! This is highly unusual for a reptile!
