Blue-tongued Skink

These skinks are the largest out of the whole skink family, growing up to 50 cm in length (depending on the species). They are found only in Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea. Of course, their name derives from their most prominent feature – their blue tongue!

There are eight species of blue-tongued skinks, with the most common species being the Common/Eastern Blue-tongued Skink (Tiliqua scincoides). They are omnivorous, feeding mainly on berries, flowers, insects, spiders, snails and slugs.


There are many different species of tortoises living at the World of Birds. Ranging from Common Padlopers, Angulate tortoises, to the large Leopard tortoises. They can be found in the large Tortoise Sanctuary at the top of the park. Tortoises eat mainly green leafy plants, as well as fruit and vegetables.
