Even alot of aussie captive stock dont come with locale

Without knowing where founder came from they arent locale animals,to much variety to guess from a certain look with most species,unless something like rottnest island shingles

Locale equals animal of known origin or descendant of such animals

I've only seen them in the wild a couple of times, once in quite a large group but I was surprised how small they were. I had pictured something bts size.
