    Hey Everyone,

    I recently purchased a group of Northern Blue Tongues and have noticed 1 is a little different to the other 4. This one has no golden/orange colouration on its back or sides at all, and has completely black eyes.

    I have searched the net to see if i could find any info about the full black eyes, but am unable to find anything. So i was just wondering if there are any Bluey breeders who have the same thing and has it affected the lizard in any way?? I thought he may have been blind, but he chases crickets and roaches down no probs so i'm not sure what the go is.

    Sorry about the pic quality, was taken on my phone.

    Cheers
    Dan

    Here is a couple of updated pics of this guy. They have more then doubled in size and even 2 of the others now seem to be losing the darker markings from their sides as they grow. Another thing i have noticed is that the lighter one has a pure white belly and the others are all covered in orange/pink scales.

    Frozenmouse it is not that line. This line is the Mark line but from the founding animals that Mark dose not even have.

    I don't know much about them but it's one cool-looking lizard considering it looks so different. Hopefully it's blessed with good health. Very nice looking animals you've scored there.
