Love the pics of the blue tongue!I used to have one as a pet when I was young.Lived in the back garden,and when it was feeding time,I wold tap a saucer on the verandah concrete and then here rustling of leaves and it would appear.Sooooo cute!
I worry about the dog the most, I'm smart enough to stay away...he is likely to want to eat one...
If it eases anybodies mind, I've been here 5 years this month and have seen 3 redbacks (all under patio furniture when it's first been brought out of the shed at the start of nice weather), 3 huntsmen (1 outside my car when parked in a rural area, 1 squashed dead whilst walking in the Adelaide Hills in a rural area and 1 outside my house in Glenelg) and that's it. Nothing else scary! Oh, my cat once caught a teeny tiny lizard type thing - smaller than my little finger. I was terrified of spiders and my first few weeks here I checked under the toilet seat, inside my shoes, under the covers before getting into bed - now I don't give it a second thought.
It's those portugese centipedes that are the biggest pain in my opinion - getting fed up with having to scoop them up from inside the house all the time. We ended up spraying a barrier around the house the other week to help stop them and found a few dead cock roaches outside air vents as a result. Seems to have cut down the invaders enough for us.
