We've had a previously unseen (to us) bird come and help itself to some of our chicken food in the last couple of days. We thought it might be a pheasant, but I was wondering if someone with a bit more knowledge might be able to identify it for us. We live in a South Eastern Suberb of Sydney, though not right on the coast. I'll attach a photo.
- Hi, we're still enjoying our blue tongue lizard. We've seen another one hanging around sometimes too, and are pretty sure we’ll be having a few baby blue tongues some time soon! But we've struck another problem... slugs. Slugs are eating our vegetables. We don't want to use slug pellets because we heard that if the blue tongue lizard eats a slug that's eaten the poison, the lizard will get sick. Do you know of any effective ways of protecting our vegies from the slugs, while at the same time not endangering our resident blue tongue lizard(s)? Thanks. We’d greatly appreciate your advice. Simon
- We have an adult Blue tongue lizard living in our back yard, and have grown quite fond of him/her. We also have a rat living in our back yard, of whom we are not so fond!! Have you any suggestions as to how we can get rid of the rat without putting the blue tongue in danger? You wirte in this article that Blue tongues are not out and about at night. Could we catch/trap/bait the rat at night with no danger to the lizard? Thanks
