Pictures of Stubbs and Elouise

Postby Emz3 » Thu Aug 30, 2012 3:12 pm

I just shamelessly want to share pictures of my two blues with you guys!

I've had them both now for about 2 months and they seem to be doing well. They eat whatever I put in front of them and I think they would eat every day if I let them! My first basking bulb went out last week so I had to go and buy a new one. It's been loads of fun trying to get the temps regulated with the new bulb. Pain in the butt! ...but we are close. They are still housed together unfortunately, as I am in the process of building a custom enclosure. (The first guy fell though, now working with a different guy. Fingers crossed!)

Stubbs has really come out of his shell. He is still the cranky one but is now so active. He's always the first one at the food dish. Elouise is still reserved and I often give her time alone in the tank to bask and eat in peace. There is not any interaction between the two of them that I see, but I know there are many hours in the day where I don't watch them. It seems the more I learn, the more freaked out I get that I am not caring for them properly. I'm sure I'll have more questions for you all in the near future!

Oh, one real question: I think I've figured out Stubbs is definitely a Merauke, but any guesses on Elouise? One person had mentioned she's an IJ? Love to know your thoughts!

Great pictures. I really like the second one. I don't know what the head lifting could be about, but sometimes when Juno hears an unusual noise she seems to do it...maybe they're just looking around?

Elouise is simply stunning, and she looks like she's smiling in the last photo! :)
I'm head-over-heels about her short face, she's a vision!!
Idk what it is about me, I'm not too in love with the long faced skinks, but Stubbs is still goodlooking too(:

The darker skink is a Merauke, while the lighter skink is an Irian Jaya.

Oh how fun! I will tell them they're famous now! Hopefully the fame doesn't go to their heads! ;)

...and thanks for the positive ID's all! That confirms what I was told before!

... and AnnaMonroe, I'm the same way! Those cute short faces get me too! XD ...don't tell Stubbs!
