Egernia Stokesii

Postby Ray Gurgui » Sun Jun 08, 2014 9:44 am

I just found some Gidgee Skinks a few minutes ago , the female was still fat yesterday , today she dropped a bit of weight
when I went give them all salad, then I saw something small running across the cage . Yup ! Got babies ! Found 3 of them .
And only 9 months after she had them last year.

Very good to see them being produced. I wish more people would realize how cool stokesii are. The demand for them should be MUCH higher than it is.

Well done Ray. I've had a fair bit of success in breeding E. cunninghami and E. striolata but can not get E. stokesii (or E. frerei) to breed :evil:

Stokesii would probably be my first choice. Let me know when you decide what you're going to ask for them Ray.
