I don't know how you'd go finding a hypo eastern, did Ray have anymore? I would go for a normal eastern though I think.

I think I'd go for a Kei Island :D I don't have any experience with either of them (and my first is going to be a Northern) but I really like the Kei Islands too! They're gorgeous! Just make sure its the right one for you! :) Good luck in your decision....are the parents coming around yet??

I put eastern just cause I want one. lol. I doubt you'd find a hypoish one unless Ray still has any. Whatever you think looks cooler, I guess.

Huck shed and he looks amazing!!! His tail is already almost yellow-green. Hes growing pretty fast too, hes my best eater! :D THANX GREG!!!!

Kaylee shed too! She is sooooo pretty now! She had scrambled eggs for Christmas (with all her other food mixed in) and she loved it! I had to keep taking the plate away so she would swallow before plowing her head in again!

I've been feeding Kaylee in my hands so she can run after it! I don't like to feed her in her tank because I've tried aspen with her and it seems to get into everything. I know some of you swear by aspen but I can't stand it! When I change her cage she's getting carefresh like my other guys!!!

I’m going to have to vote Eastern. My first Bluey was an Eastern, and I think they make a great lizard pet. (Besides I don’t want to sound like a self promoter…)

BTW- I’m glad all the Kei offspring are eating well and growing nicely. Thanks all.

Jenn and Mike's babies are really cute, but for a first bluey I'd have to say Eastern for personality.

My eastern looks hypo but I will not call it that, they are wonderful pets and very calm, I cannot say anything on Kei's since I don't own one. (Yet)

My Kei Island baby shed too!! I THINK...she was REALLY grey and cloudy yesterday and then today she was all green and reddish...so I think she ate her shed. Silly Skink!

I want an Eastern too, but they're both neat...:)

I don't know how you'd go finding a hypo eastern, did Ray have anymore


I thaught he bred them? or did he sell the parents or something? I might have to wait a while if I do get one but hopefully not. But ya my parents havent come around yet but they are getting better :) I think it was because I just gave them there 1 year anniversary card that was decorated with blueys. :lol: They were amazed at how their tongues at how blue their tongues are. :D

But ya mabey I should have added northern to this too. so you guys can also say if you would prefer a Northern over those two also.
