How did you find out about the MS Readathon and why did you join? A: Last year in school, we got a note about the MS Readathon. I discussed it with my mum, and she helped me join.

BLUE-TONGUE LIZARDS Blue-tongue lizards are found all over Australia, and you might be lucky enough to spot a few visiting your backyard. These reptiles are talented tricksters and great at bluffing! In the animal kingdom, bright colours (like blue) are often a venomous warning sign to other creatures. Blue-tongue lizards will puff themselves up to appear even bigger when they are threatened, and open their mouth wide to hiss and show their blue tongue.
