    Ok your going to want to do heaps of research on breeding weights, breeding season, timing of pairings etc
    Morphs generally mean colour or pattern mutations so different colours than you would traditionally see
    Bluetonguelizard on Facebook (Joe Ball) would be a great person to talk to or at least give his page a good stalking haha

    Hey everyone , I a bit confused again as you seen in my last thread lol , when I bought this blue tongue the person I bought it off told me to get these light bulbs from Bunnings instead of buying heat lamps from pet retailers , it started to dawn on me over the few weeks that it doesn't seem right about these bulbs I don't think they priduce the heat that is required for the reptile so I went back to the red heat bulb that I got from the pet shop.
    Any thoughts please would be much appreciated .

    I use the Bunnings globes just fine :)
    It's just a manner of getting the right wattage

    How about getting hold of a book called keeping and breeding Austalian Lizards by a guy named Mike Swan, it will give you all the information you need before you go out and buy any more Lizards or equipment, better for you and better for the Lizards. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) -ronhalling
