Adelaide pigmy blue-tongue skink
The Adelaide pygmy blue-tongue skink or pygmy bluetongue (Tiliqua adelaidensis) is a species of skink in the Scincidae family. Found only in Australia, it was for a time believed to be extinct. A small population is found outside Adelaide, but it is extremely vulnerable, given its small population and limited living area.
