Have I ever introduced you by Rott-Rott Have I ever introduced you by Rott-Rott
To my son Saul.
This is a picture that was taken last summer when I just got him. Saul is a Blue Tongue Skink. I highly recommend getting a lizard like this. They do get sizable but they are nothing but rewarding. 
I've wanted a Blue Tongue for over a decade after discovering one at a pet store. Ever since then I've homed four snakes :). It wasn't till july when I drove with my best friend :iconxxkurse10xx: to chicago for an expo. Saul was the only bts being sold. She graciously allowed him to stay with her for a few months! After then I was able to move him in in replacement of my red-tail boa (she was getting too big ; ; so I had to get rid of her).

So this is SAUL!! He's my pride and joy. I will probably end up getting him inked somewhere on me ;) haven't decided where tho!

I remember this naturologist I really looked up to had one and I got to feed him raw, powdered chicken. It was awesome but he passed away a few years after. :c

aaaaaaa so adorable and beautiful <3

I've been looking to get one of these and honestly I only know so much about taking care of them, but if you don't mind me asking what is it like caring for him, and how great of a pet would a blue tongue make? I'm definitely not a first time reptile owner, but I've certainly never had a blue tongue before.

Yes they are absolutely great pets. They are very laid back.
Definitely do your research as far as diet, housing, and handling.

This is a skink, a species of lizard. I don't think your mom would want you to have one of these either. Perhaps if you could teach one to do chores.....and taxes. XD

Was yours all hissy pissy when you got him? I've had mine for maybe 6 months, and he still gets all hissy and grumpy when I try to handle him.

Yes. It takes them a few weeks to get accLimated. When you show them that you're not a that they will calm down. Hand feed him or her and let them climb on you. Mine was easy. I'm also good with reptiles though. Just be calm and they will be calm too

I'd like to consider myself to be good with reptiles as well, though I am more familiar with snakes. Thanks for the tips, though! Hopefully he'll calm down as he gets older/bigger as well.

I've always loved these, I have wanted one forever gosh. I just don't have the money for a this kickass enclosure I'd want right now. ;o; The pet store around here always sell them but it's when they're quite older and I'd rather get a younger one and start him/her out myself. ;o;

He is quite the cutie!!

You know what, I've come across a lot of Bluey's in the places I've lived at (Queensland, Australia), but I've never seen one as large as that. May I ask how long he is? They are so docile and gentle, I miss seeing them wander by in the garden.....
