Subspecies?

Postby Piebald320 » Thu Nov 16, 2017 12:19 pm

So I was told this guy was an IJ and I never doubted it until recently. I have been reading other posts where people are identifying other skinks and it has me second guessing because I some people said that dark legs and a single line on the neck is a Marauke trait. So basically I'd just like a second opinion! Thanks in advance!
