Help me identify my new 2 year old skink please!

Postby david1517 » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:31 pm

Hello everyone I just recently as in yesterday got this beautiful girl blue tongue skink. A guy from Texas was moving into a smaller apartment and needed her to go to a good home so I bought her because I couldn't find any others and I wanted an adult. He said she's about 2 years old and was sold to him as an Indonesian but she's extremely tame and hasn't shown any signs of being and Indonesian, considering everything I read says Indonesians arent very tame. Ill attach some pictures of her down below I am just so curios as to what she is so I can care for her in the best way possible. Thank you!

She's an Indonesian. I'm not sure about the sub-species, but it looks like a merauke to me.
