The blotchies are all relatively dark,very gorgeous colours, and thank you I love blotched blue tongues. But yes i may be biased because i live in Tasmania XD and all the skinks ive owned have been blotchies hehe.
im going to subscribe to your youtube if thats ok, ive only just gotten to know youtube and uploaded a couple of my most recent bluey, eating his treats a banana and that snail thats WAY too large for him to handle (so he just runs around the room with it in his mouth) though my videos are poor quality from an iphone

Mine also love earthworms, but its never difficult getting mine to eat their meat and protein. its the veggies I always need to mix with dog food or lean ground chicken etc
Dan, do your skinks really eat all that on its own without being blended? mine are such fuss pots XD

Just for the future, it might be healthier if you replace celery with a different veggie. It's mostly water and doesn't have much nutrition, plus it's hard to digest and i know that in some animals like mice and rats it can cause impaction problems, so if i had to guess I'd say there was a chance it could for lizards as well.
Mine loves his egg treats! :]

I then add other things, like a small amount of fruit. I also change up what types of squash. I am hoping to find some store that sell other skink friendly greens, as I want to start arugula, watercress, and cactus pad/leaf to the mix too.
