Pink tongued, and pinky orange underneath

Skink in a bottle 2005

The Queensland Museum has a PDF info sheet (Reptiles 10) on Blue and Pink-tongued Skinks.

They describe both skinks as “robust and short-limbed, with broad, triangular heads. As well as tongue colour, they may be distinguished by the length and shape of their tails. Blue-tongues have tails which are shorter than their bodies and very thickset. Pink-tongues have relatively longer, narrower tails.”
