On my way to school
Hey guys my brother was walking to school at the corner where he turns about 100metres from my house he found an adult blotched bluetongue just chillin on the footpath so he called me I didn't believe him at the time because we live in a suburban area. He was right so i ran down to where him and the bluey were. We rang our mum and told her the story she said just leave it there and i said no thers a construction site across the road where there building new houses plus we live on a main road with cars speeding up and down all the time. She said go get a shoebox and take him home. So i did that while my brother stayed with the bluey. When i came back to the bluey i scooped him up gently into the shoebox. Right now he is in a big moving box with alot of floor space and in there he has got a water dish and a food dish (container lids) and he is outside soaking up the sun. He was a little bit stressed until i got him home and into the box has settled down well.
When my mum gets home we will be going to the vet and getting him checked out he has a scratched out eye but other than that he looks fine to me.
Am i able to keep him if he turns out ok?
I have a double enclosure coming in a few weeks to put him in and also for my beardie. (2 4x2x2 enclosures in 1 unit)

Can't keep him mate and I would have left him where he was, he probably lives in one of your neighbours' yard.

I don't know about Victorian legislation, but you may be able to apply for a rescue type permit if the animal is injured and seen a vet, as some states allow this.Only The Best Will Do

I will try i already have and eastern a blotched would be great. He has a scratched eye but other than that he is fine loves the water and has already ate for me in the first 20 minutes.
How do i apply for a rescue permit and is there a specific age?
