Blue Tongue Skink on Craigslist

Hello there!!

I love animals! so much! i love researching them and like to know my stuff to make sure they get the best care possible. I currently have a dog, a panther chameleon, and two lovely sugar gliders.

Recently me and my mom have been interested in blue tongue skinks as pets & i found an add on craigslist for a blue tongue who i just would love to rescue. the owner cannot keep up with/take care of him. I'm doing all my research at the moment to make sure everything is correct but i would love to clarify the subspecies of this guy so i can take care of him properly if we end up getting him.

Again, am still researching bts so my best guess is indonesian? (don't laugh if I'm wrong ahah!) he also looks young, would y'all say about 8 months? or is he just underweight? :(

Thank you so much!!!!!!

Looks to be a Halmahera Indonesian. They are typically on the smallish side as far as BTS species go, usually between 20"-24". This one may very well be an adult and also doesn't appear terribly thin or malnourished to me.
