Unexpected Visitor

Unexpected visitor for the new year— can you guess who it might be?
Another hint… scroll down to find out!

Above are the eye and cute plump forelimb of a northern blue-tongued skink (Tiliqua scincoides intermedia). The cane toads have nearly wiped them out locally since their arrival over ten years ago, and blueys are now a rare sight in the Top End. She is probably the only one I will encounter while I’m here, but it is promising to see that they are still around. Read my following post to see more photos of this beautiful sleek giant.
