Here is the newest edition to my Reptile family. I currently have a male adult Russian tortoise, whom I love. I also have a Female Gargoyle Gecko. She is beautiful, but pretty much plays and stays t herself. Then yesterday, at the New England Reptile Expo I purchased a Kei Island Blue Tongue Skink from the great folks at New England Reptile Distributors (or better known as NERD).

Here is a little video of "Terrance" my Kei Island BTS, "Sheldon" my Russian Tortoise, and "Poppy" my Gargoyle Gecko.

Here is my Skink enjoying some lazy time in the garden.

This was probably the first time that she has ever been in real sunlight.

Can anyone help me identify my skink ? I’ve been told he’s a merauke ? But I can’t be sure as I’m completely new to this.

I’m picking him up next week! :)

Hi Miller, I would say your skink is an Irian Jaya :-)

This is Bumblebee, my Merauke BTS. She's (don't even know if it's a she) roughly 5 1/2 months old. I've had her for two months and she finally let me pet her head/back yesterday!

Bumblebee looks like a very nice example of a classic Indonesian (Tiliqua gigas gigas) to me. No worries though. Same care as the Merauke!

Alright then, my mistake! Someone had told me she looks like a Merauke. Is the identifying factor her legs being solid black?

Yes solid black legs are a good indicator of Tiliqua gigas gigas and its Halmahera form. Most Meraukes tend to have a single prominent black stripe that runs across the grain on their neck. This feature is usually absent with the classic Indonesians and Irian Jayas. And the body for Meraukes tends to be clean between the stripes whereas gigas gigas is more mottled. There are obviously exceptions with each but these characteristics tend to run true.
