Today, a marauding Blue Tongue Lizard was identified by witnesses as a key suspect in the persistent loss of papayas from a local home.

A papaya, which had fallen from the owners’ only tree and had negligently been left on the ground, attracted the attention of the very large and ravenous reptile, known to his accomplices as Bluey.

Experts consider that this is not Bluey’s first offence. Residents of the home had pondered for some time over the half-eaten remains of other fallen papayas.

Today’s daylight robbery was witnessed by a local resident, a tired cat and another resident Blue Tongue Lizard, a minor, watching from a safe distance from under an air-conditioning unit.

Upon the uncovering of Bluey’s crime, he skedaddled along a raised garden bed and under a neighbour’s fence.

Wishing you hours of enjoyment and contentment in your garden… And a Merry Christmas to all!
