    I just thought that I'd Share these pics of a blue tongue skink that I got today. I got it from a petstore that some how got it from an owner that had stepped on it and broke it's back. It has completely healed, except for a flat spot on his back. He kind of looks like a humpback lizard. He's about 1 1/2 feet long.

    Notice the flat spot.

    They're very common where I come from, actually got them living in my back yard.

    The back door of the house is usually left open for the cats and food is left there for them on the floor. It's not uncommon to walk in and find a blue-tongue eating the cat food.

    He is really very tame, even after all he's been though. He has a personality like a hognose snake. Very friendly. This is my first experience with a skink, and so far I really like him. He get's around very good, to have had a broken back. It's back is a little weird looking. You can see it pretty good in the first pic. But it's even weirder looking in person. I really don't see how he survived.

    In bleak description the waves come crashing; battering the very instinct of every lusting moment to fulfill this gaping desire. A mouth as dry as soot and how it once had tasted of life, fit within a momentís time; And how those fleeting days laid in the light of blissful suffering. -me

    Yeah, I think I now have more reptiles then they do, and I only charge $5 to see them. Tomorrow is $7 because it's feeding day. I have now outgrown all my equipment, and I now have aquraiums on the floor in my living room.
    My wife is thrilled about that.

    I just thought I'd give a little update. He was just sitting on my shoulder when he bit me on the neck. Man that hurt.
    I sure hope that kingsnake is hungry.
