Southern Western Australia, where blue-tongues are found.

Where they live

They live in Australia's remote areas (e.g. southern Western Australia, southern Queensland, northern New South Wales) where there are a lot of trees.

Their dangers, from natural and introduced species

Natural predators like the kookaburra eat blue-tongues which balance the food chain. Unfortunately, introduced species to Australia like the feral cat unbalance the food chain by eating blue-tongues' food source and even the blue-tongues themselves.
