Yellow Indonesian Project

Recently, in the last few years, I have seen many yellow Indonesian blue tongues  (Tiliqua gigas gigas) come into the US probably gathered from some particular locality. Unlike the earlier animals which were near black, these are a radiant yellow and I decided to acquire three of them, all unrelated juveniles. 

While their temperament is testy, I am currently working with them in hopes of taming them sufficiently as to be easily handleable.

Many people fail to realize just how much variety exists in blue tongue skinks especially with t.g.g.  each quite unique and worth propagating. In the past, when the dark black indos were coming in frequently, I thought they were drab and plain but now they are rare. I haven't seen them in years. I wish I could've bought them then. 

I hope to breed them at the end of this year and have babies (possibly available) in '07.

These pictures were taken outside and the sun was extremely bright on this particular day. I'll redo them when time and the weather permits. You can still see the great yellow coloration of these very gorgeous skinks.
