Wanted - White BTS

Postby RoflOnMyWaffle » Wed May 10, 2017 9:12 am

Hi guys, I'm new to the world of BTS and the forum.

I've been doing research and want to look further into it, but need your help!
I'm based in the UK, so this affects which types of BTS I can get unfortunately, but I was hoping you can point me in the right direction

I'm looking to get a white one if I can, failing that, as large of a BTS as I can ( starting as a baby )
Here are a few pics of the "white" one I'm looking for

Are these available in the UK? I'm assuming due to their colours, they won't be common, or a good price haha but any information is welcome.

I'm going to the IHS breeders show in Doncaster in June, so I might find one there :)

Cheers guys

Probably available in the UK..... but will be scarce as hens' teeth and cost you a fortune to buy .... last time I saw one for sale (here in Australia they wanted over $1000 for it).
http://bluetonguelizard.com.au/bluey-mo ... -northern/ , the breeder shown is in Australia and it's illegal to export Australian Reptiles .

You might find a breeder in the UK who some that he has produced in his breeding program - maybe .....

The whites outside of Australia are a line bred trait. The babies appear normal but turn white with age. It can take them a few years to turn white. There's only a couple of breeders working with them and they are in the USA.
