    QLD parks and wildlife service donated them to me and they wrote them as "blue tongue lizards" so I just wanted to know what she was so I asked them reptile guy at the pet shop he said she was a northern, but she has no black or orange bands to the sides.
    She's a big old eastern then

    She also look similar to the hypos on Bluetonguelizard.com

    Bear in mind they range from past Adelaide to Cape York and across to about Mt. Isa and are pretty variable, especially in Qld. As you go north in Qld the markings tend to become less dark and not as predominant. For example, the eye stripe can all but disappear from northerly individuals and the width,intensity and number of bands can be greatly reduced. At 53 cm yhat is a full grown Eastern. Northerns have a longer tail and can get to another 10 cm or so in total length.

    Ha! I knew it! I'm relieved, In the end I was kind of second guessing myself. Nice to be confirmed.
