    I have found a breeder but none of the photos of the animals have the white/red/yellow colouring as the ones that Kel Worley had.
    They have the same colouring as a MD.

    It would be interesting to see if the photos of the captive individuals were a good representative of the wild animals you saw. Did the wild animals have the white/red/yellow like the Kel Worley captive animals, or did they have more MD colouring?

    I don't think the photos were edited, they were probably just exceptional examples of a locality. If Shagger can find the photos of the wild animals we will have a better idea if the Kel Worley captives were a good representation, or exceptional examples. I hope that the wild population has the white/red/yellow and the captive, MD coloured, animals I saw are the exception.

    @nick_75 ive managed to locate a photo of Kel Worleys animals and after located a saved file (Not my photo) of what i think is a MT isa Dajarra locality (im still looking for those elusive shots) as you can see this particular animal is more MD Colouring compared to Kel Worleys animal below

    Kelly Nowak at Hawkesbury reptiles breeds Dajarra locale MDs originating from Kel Worley’s line.
    Colours vary but form what I’ve seen pretty typical of northern MDs with browns and rusty reds in the mix. Their most noticeable characteristic is that they don’t grow very big compared to most Murray’s , seemingly maxing out at around 1.2m or so.
