Thread: Help Identifying?
A Mate of mine has these guys he wants to get rid of. Now he has gone away and i can't contact him so i wanted to get a positive ID on these guys.
Its the skinny one with the more stripey pattern I'm after an ID on. A central netted? Just a different pattern?
The question i have about the fat one is would it be gravid? Whilst holding her i felt her stomach softly, and i think i could feel eggs but i have NO CLUE if she is and neither would my mate.
I'll get these guys if my licence ever comes through? but would like to know that they are definanty a pair first.
No one at all?

I don't think the one with the stripes is a CND. Painted Dragon maybe - not too sure? And the other one, not too sure about it either, could be a CND. Geckodan is probably the best person to ask here.
I'll put my money on Ctenophorus salinarum

Hey Jordo whats the common name for what you've just suggested?
I'm thinking a painted dragon (wont bet on it) but i'll take central netted to the bank for the last one.A Life Lived in Fear Is a Life Half Lived.....But Bali Aussie Lives On!!!
Ill go Ctenophorus pictus for the first ones and C nuchalis for the last two.

Why not check on your mates permit?
He is away at the moment mate and isn't able to be contacted. Just wanted to get a ID so i can have a answer before he gets back.

So where did you find them?
hey guys lay off he said its his friends (although his licenced friend wouldnt buy an animal not knowing its species name or common name)
urodacus_au is spot on! both quite common. Painted dragons, and the end one is a central netted, centrals flatten to get maximum surface area heated, so it may not be gravid, but then again it could be, dont squeeze it to feel eggs, let it be and it will lay if it has any? both species are short lived and breed fast. Only a few years in em, sometime only a couple of years depending how old you buy them.
Looking again, those are my best educated guesses, although if it werent for the head shape in the first images, id be inclined to tell you it wouldnt be the first striped netted ive seen either! but i stand by these being painted
I'm against taking animals from the wild.
I gave my friends brother a call today and he said there is a painted and a central netted. He said the male to the central netted died due to a unknown cause the other day. Please don't accuse me of taking things from the wild with no proof and when you do not know me.
Thanks for all the help guys.
