Help IDing please

Postby 871ajohnson » Mon Oct 16, 2017 5:20 pm

This little guy (or girl) is the most precious baby. I have been contemplating adding him or her to my growing reptile collection ( I have a reptile room in my newly purchased home! :) ), but would like to know exactly what type he/she is. If I did purchase, this would be my first skink. Thanks in advance for any/all help IDing!!! :D

Can I get a picture of its belly?

It is a little blurry, but it is the only photo I have that shows a bit of the belly. Hope this works.

Not an IJ. It’s a Indonesian tiliqua gigas gigas. IJs don’t have black bellies.
