Thats dannys picure from chilli beach i think
ah yeah think it was, couldn't be certain though was sent to me a while ago... danny if you want me to take it down just let me know and it's gone, no worries
nice looking little critter
Ill take 10 thanks
Looks like another amazing Varanus species, i havent seen those ones before.
Another case in point is the Gammon Ranges python, distinct by colour and geographical location, yet not recognised as a separate subspecies.
Yes, that's my image. It has been verified by a number of individuals with extensive doreanus experience as being a juvenile of that species. Two other juveniles have been seen as well as at least three adults photographed (but try as I may I could not locate a copy of or the owner of the Lockhart river image ).
now just while we're on the subject of v indicus taxonomy, would anyone care to elaborate on the possible presence of v finschi on the mainland or torres strait islands?
That one has be long declared as an erroneous sample and entry and the sample has long since been lost.
thanks for clearing that up Danny
Ok this is the photo I tried posting before but it didn't work. I hope it works this time... As far as I know this is def not Dreanus.
Wild or captive? That's a blue morph indicus.
its not wild either
Apparently it is wild, I would link to the site but its against forum rules but here is another photo and unless this was a stage then it is def wild.

Oh ok so not wild lol I'm curious though, are there natural occurring specimens such as this?
as far as i know not in aus, but danny seems to think so, so i could be wrong
