ID Halmahera or Merauke?

Postby Reizakirga » Mon Apr 27, 2020 4:36 pm

Hello!
New BTS owner here and had a question!

Is this baby cutie a Halmahera or Merauke?
They have a bit of light orange starting under the belly but also a lot of it under the chin.

I just want to make sure my humidity and such is correct for the species.
Thanks!

Better pictures from directly over top your skink will help us identify better.

Looks like a merauke to me. Very similar care. Need humidity 60% and above. Great lizards as pets
