They don't do much for me. They've never washed the dishes, ironed my shirts or cooked me dinner. Never even wished me a happy birthday!
Someone had to say it.
Will do. Thanks :-)

Nice one mate!
Pretty much anything you like, as long as you can maintain the animal safely, provide all of its needs and it's acquired legally. Some of the ones...

Who's breeding 'em?

Yes... it's also a reptile :D
Edit: Too late. I was going with guttatus.
lol. Hint: No one even has the genus yet.
It happens :)
I've got the feeling Mattsnake had that one on the first guess... not a bad effort!
I googled Mt Buffalo and it appears to be in VIC... well outside the known range for mcpheei :shock: Misidentified striolata / saxatilis?

That narrows it down to what... 370+ species? :D
Finally lol. Nice one!
