    Assuming it's an eastern my guess is it is hypomelanistic?

    Queensland locale Eastern. Lack of eye bands is the trait I'm basing that on. Although some Easterns from parts of South Oz exhibit this too.

    My guess on actual locale would be of Darling Downs origin.

    Your first 2 are typical of Easterns from the Sydney basin.

    Generally speaking, QLD locale Easterns have pale eye banding. Your pictured bluey is a good representation of an eastern from from the Darling Downs.

    The one you found in the bush is just an Eastern (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides), here's a pic of a similar Eastern I saw crossing a road in Riverstone in Sydney's west a few years ago.

    One from Torquay, south of Melbourne.

    But we are getting off topic, this is a "show us ya blueys" not a "show ya blueys you have seen in the bush" thread. :)

    "Blueys are lazy and don't like climbing" "your bluey won't climb that" "blueys are boring I'd rather watch paint dry" my girl does it all, climbs, digs, plays in her leaf piles and curls up in her feeding tub when she's hungry, as long as I add new scenery and move things around she's happy (and no she doesn't climb up there for heat there is no heat lamp)

    Here's my little death angel, Azrael. He's a 1 year old Eastern. You can partially see the mass destruction he made behind him. No matter how neat and beautiful his enclosure is, he destroys it.

    I'm not quite sure if anyone would be concerned about the cat litter. Most of the time I hear its bad and other times its good. His tank isn't covered in it entirely. Its placed only on the cool side using rocks to section it off while the rest is fake grass.

    I love the variation in colour around shed time.
