Pictures of wild Pink Tongues

Postby RoryBreaker » Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:07 pm

I have seen a lot of these over the years. I was going though some photos from more than 20 years ago and came across these.

One from Lamington National Park, Gold Coast hinterland in south East Queensland.

Connondale range NP, near Kenilworth.

I have neglected taking more pics of these guys over the years mainly due to fact they are commonly encountered on roads at night wherever the road passes through appropriate habitat.

Seeing pics of wild pink tongues, they so often have really dark banding and great yellow ground colours. I'm living in the wrong bloody country!

Thank you - great photos. I love the variation present in wild Pink tongues and wish we had more of it represented here in the US!

Oh, Pinktongues are so nice! Would love to me get me a group of them.. if I can ever find any that have lots of black on them, like these.
