    They are not that rare and cost about 1000 euro a pair but a pair of Egernia epsisolus or cygnitos is 5000 euro

    Thanks for mentioning me, Wally. Lol.

    I would be keeping a lot more Egernia if it weren't for WA's measly species list. Or more skinks in general. The only skinks that seem to be represented are Tiliqua. Apparently the rest can go to buggery. Here's a few shots. If you haven't noticed, King's Skinks are one of my favourite lizards. The small brown lizards are South-western Crevice Skinks (Egernia napoleonis).

    King's skinks are so cool looking
    I've never seen them for sale in EU or USA but I need one. Egernia is a growing group in the hobby over here and the people who has them work really hard to make them breed and make cb animals accessible to all

    That and they have an attitude to match. I gave them a whole two week old quail, rather than chop it into appropriately sized pieces. They took it apart no problems, crocodile death roll style. Good exercise for them.

    Rescued them from extremely poor conditions.. Both were in the same 60cm tub in the corners with their backs arched trying to escape which is where the kink in their backs came from. The previous owner had no idea how to care for them and had only had them for a few weeks after purchasing them from a pet shop. The lizards had no mobility in their back legs which has surprisingly fully healed and both can walk properly now.

    Good on you for rescuing them. Amazing how people acquire these animals without an inkling of knowing how to care for them.
