Pink Tongue skinks are an arboreal slender cousin of the blue tongue skink. They are native to New South Wales and Queensland in Australia. The husbandry of these animals is very similar to that of a blue tongue but these animals climb more and require quite high humidity. They are relatively hardy lizards are very placid and will thrive at moderate temperatures and provided with an appropriate diet. Unlike blue tongues they are more fussy about their food and require lots of snails to keep them happy; however they will also take certain manufactured diets such as Arcadia OmniGold.
