My guess: Alpines $2500 a pair, centralians $3500-4000.

Wow! I could probably buy at least three pairs of centralians here for that amount!

Lol, poor Zach :( !

I was going to say more Danny, but if they are selling them for like $600 like the one that was in the Melbourne pet shop then it would be around 4 pairs. That's why I added atleast in to it.

Yes TQ, alpines do vary lots. I have probably seen over 200 in the wild from the alpine areas in Victoria right up to south of Canberra, and they are real different. And the thing is, they are also varying in the same localilty. For eg, I saw the best alpine I have even seen near Thredbo this summer, then 20 metres down the road (the Alpine Way that is), was another, and boy, it would have to be the worst I have ever seen!!!!! As Edward said, they cannot be a distinct species. I would describe them as a phenotypic variation. I am also of the opinion, although I havent proven it yet, that in some populations, altitude may be a factor in phenotype. I will let you know in a year or two, but I have started collecting data on a population east of Cooma on the Great Dividing Range, where initial data suggests that this may be the case (or a fluke at the very least!!!).

Thanks! I'd love to just be able to walk around and find wild blotched. I've hardly seen any wild BTS here!

Just let me know when you are keen, I start field work for reptiles in September/October and I am always on the look out for volunteers?

I would love to! Except, I think there are very few around here. I could still look though, or go out to the bush.

Hehe...one job we do in western NSW in around October, you will see about 50 shinglebacks a day!!!!

Then I go into the snowy mountains in January and at one site see about 20 alpines a day.

IN between there are lots of things to head out on if you are keen to see reptiles in the wild and help out on research projects.

Just let me know if you are keen and send me you details and I will keep you posted. You just have to get yourself to Wagga (train is about $30 I think), then all food and accomadation is provided.
