I Can't Believe It's Not Molluscs

I suspected the baby blue-tongue lizard was still living in the garden, bit I had no way of knowing. I asked H. about this, and she suggested I make up the following mix and place it on a flat dish in the garden

1 tblespoon very finely chopped lettuce
1 tblespoon very finely chopped cucumber
1 tblespoon very finely chopped apple
1 tblespoon of mashed banana.

I put it out this morning, and just now I saw Polly run to the opposite side of the yard and start barking at the garden. When I looked I saw a tiny blue-tonue disappearing into an old mouse hole. It looks like the I Can't Believe It's Not Molluscs is a hit with the blue-tongue residents. I hope I don't over-feed him to the point where he stops eating snails.

Apparently this mix is a hit with bearded dragons, too. I wonder if I can attract some into the yard.
