Another old picture. Unknown locale due to it being a zoo animal, late 90's from the Australian Reptile Park.

I am told the south coast of NSW is of similar appearance.

I spotted the scabby submissive male 'throwing the leg' over the female this afternoon. The other male was happy enough to just watch.:)

Would have been nice for them to of done that while filming yesterday. :doh:

Haha,they have a habit of doing that,when i used to sit in pit taking pics of blotchies mating or filming them,the cunninghams would run around after each other,throw a leg over and be gone before i could click,lol,like they were messing with you

I made up a few head comparison pictures a while back to show the subtle difference in head shape on another forum. I have been meaning to get around to posting them in here, so here we go.

Sydney sandstone form.

Southern Queensland form.

I dunno if this helps at all.

Super interesting photos those. The shorter, more rounded face on the males is quite clear. I now need to go and look at my animals....
