Species ID?

Postby ototoxin » Thu May 30, 2019 7:07 pm

Friend got their very first skink recently, and we’ve both had trouble trying to ID her. I think she’s either an Indo or an Irian Jaya, but she looks too red for Indo and too dark for IJ. We won’t know for sure until she sheds, I’m betting.

What do you all think?

Looks IJ to me or a possible hybrid. IJs are quite variable.

Yeh I’d guess IJ as it looks a lot like mine from the top view.

As was mentioned, it's an Irian Jaya.
