    As I mentioned before there was a live hybrid bluey stumpy in Adelaide museum many years ago and I have heard a number of specimens caught in the Grampians Vic.

    Most unlikely though.
    Both species courtship is different...

    Ive never heard of them crossing so this is something new for me to look into :)

    You are right there was a live hybrid blue tongue X stumpy tail on display in the Adelaide Museum, l saw 2 on display there between 1992 and 1996, they both were collected from the wild in the Flinders Rangers SA.

    Can someone possibly post a link to a picture of one, I've been searching for one for like 2hrs now and still haven't seen one that look like a shingleback X Blue tounge. :/

    521649_2073291690075_1778400222_1003163_1817109860_n.jpg My sisters recently got back from a trip to cairns where they photographed a Stumpy X Bluey hybrid from the zoo there. Apparently this is it. When I saw the picture I thought it was a western bluey.
