    No its not possible to breed different Sub-Species of Blue-Tongue Lizard's, in fact its illegal to do this if you don't believe me contact your local Wildlife Authority in your state and ask them if you can or cannot do it, l bet they will tell you its illegal to cross breed Sub-Species of any Reptile's.

    It is possible, but like mentioned.. illegal.

    When I say possible... it can happen, but very rarely.

    Pretty sure subspecies will breed easily if kept together. I wouldn't do it but a mate had his two "female" blueys in his outside pit witha few other things and they got baby eastern x blotchies.

    it is possible, it also regularly happens, especially over seas.

    it isn't recommended on an over-all ethical level, hence why its illegal.

    I should warn you, I've been known to murder people who don't understand the difference between a breed and a species... with my bear hands! :evil:

    Despite also having the urge to murder, let it be known deadrabbit, that our 'breeds' are actually species and sub species each independent of eachother. Occasional interbreeding happens between certain species that live in the same areas while in the wild, but it is illegal in captivity. Our snakes looking different have nothing to do with us breeding them with eachother and you're likely to get a hell of a flaming for promoting it, wanting it and/or not knowing the difference.

    That's the thing, we don't to 'it' with snakes, it occurs naturally, we have nothing to do with it!

    Honestly, I suggest you start doing some research. Before you even consider breeding, you must understand species, breeds, hybrids, and other terms.

    I have never seen nor heard about an Eastern blue tongue cross shingleback. I was under the impression that shinglebacks were fussy breeders and only breed with unrelated individuals of their own species?

    If you breed them the best way to raise the hatchlings would be to put them in the freezer ;)
