Snail Exterminator 

Eastern Blue-tongue lizard.  Scientific name: Tiliqua scincoides scincoides.

Eats snails and though he can give a nasty bite he doesn’t have teeth or venom which makes him postively friendly by Australian standards. His main defence when threatened is to stick out his blue tongue, very scary!

NSW, Australia
