Meet our mate - Bluey

This little guy's being hanging out in our backyard for a few months now. He's a blue tongue lizard (or so we believe) who we have affectionately (and rather uncreatively) named 'Bluey'.
A few weeks ago we found Bluey trying to climb up the overflow pipe for our swimming pool. We tried everything to get him out - a tickle, a prod - I even tried gently pulling him out by the tail. But to no available.
Then hubby had the brilliant idea to pull the plug in the pool and 'flush' him out! Poor Bluey. I'm sure he thought he was going to perish but the little trooper backed himself out of the hole quicksmart!
Despite the ordeal, little Bluey's decided to hang around and we found him today out in the vegetable garden stalking insects.
Gotta love having little helpers in the garden!
