This ancient looking little fellow, about 30 cm long (12 inches), is a stump-tailed lizard or a "stumpy". It is a type of blue-tongued skink. When disturbed by curious naturalists it gets all huffy and hisses and sticks its blue tongue out of its wide open mouth. While it looks quite ferocious and intimidating it is actually completely harmless.
