Wow ,what great shots,the eyes on that eastern make him look really alert,Richard, is there any research being done as to brood amount and size, I mean does climate, food availability have an effect on individual baby size and amount born or is it all random natural selection.

im not sure leigh,female size can play apart and the number of babies they have,more babies equals smaller babies,the female northern is a fair bit larger than the 2 southern varietys that had babies this season as well,but the alpine had 8 babies last season and at least 2 slugs on top of that which made last years so small,the easterns eye does look rather spooky looking at the pic,looks like its really open,lol,hes a really placid fella though,never even hisses at me,back to the babies,over the years with the blotcheds ive produced ,ive noticed that the size can vary,ive had rather large ones and rather small ones to,and from the same females in different years,maybe someone else can elaborate on this
calling geoff and colin,lol

the kimberly is a large area,the person i got her from had 3 wa varieties of them ranging from broome varietiey,kunnawarra variety,and prince fredrick region or something,as well as typical darwin ones as well and there was tremendous variety between each type,the broome ones were reasonably similar to the kunnawarra ones though the kunnawarra ones were alot more speckly,u have to see them to believe them,i shall ask the owner of them if he can post them on here,im not saying there different just looks wise they look alot different,just more detailed locality data as the kimberly is a large area

Being new to these critters I'm constantly amazed at how many different ones there are. Those green ones are stunning!!

The northern is unique. Bet it'd be hard spotting mites on him! :?

The "Broome" Northern looks very Kimberley to me too, but I still love the Northern variations. :cloud9:
