land mullets are in my opinion the most beautiful Australian skink, have been looking at them for a while in the past,from what I understand they like a large enclosure, basking temps of 30 degrees(? not too sure about this), a mostly vegetable diet, and decent humidity. I would be keeping my...
God I love this place,
The people are so friendly, and it is just a beautiful place overall. Visiting the market, we bought some delicious homemade jams and relishes and some wood burnt art from a very talented elderly woman.
But, I wanted herps, and so far, I have a few, but no photos. I was...

While searching around for info on land mullets I came across this Old article from a copy of The Courier Mail from 29 July 1950, the electronic translation needs a few corrections, is better to read the original article, http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/49723233

As I already said in my presentation message, I'm a french herper coming to Brisbane (yes I'm gonna live there one year long) !
I don't know Australia, and I don't know Australian species that's why I'm looking for some people who can come or invite me to come on the field next to...
I have finally finished my sandy enclosure so I thought I might throw a few pics up. For near start to finish. I forgot to take a pic right at the start. I used mostly recycled materials and I know the rustic look won't appeal to some but I'm a fan.
I'm trying to decide what would make the most use of a 5 foot long by 2 wide by 3 high wooden enclosure. It was originally for my Jungle but she's still a baby and this enclosure screams lizard. I'm at the point in construction where I must make a final choice so as to continue down the specific...
just curious to find something that means a lot to you to do with reptiles. it could be a DIY enclosure, first reptile, favorite reptile or a special reptile. my stimsons python means the world to me and when we moved i was so grateful to have him as my pet, he has never tried to strike at me...
So, like many of you, I made a brief appearance at the Castle Hill Expo today. Man it was hot and sticky in there! Definitely some AMAZING animals though. I was so stoked to get to see the black woma in person, also got to pet a sand monitor which really made my day. Sadly, I didn't...
I spent 3 weeks in Melbourne over Christmas 2012 visiting the girlfriends family but managed to make my excuses and sneak out as much as possible. Sorry for the generic descriptions under the pictures but I just copy/pasted them from Flickr. I live in the UK and most of the people seeing these...
I purchased this guy a few years back as a Black Rock skink but kept it separate to my others for obvious reasons got an idea what it is and that it is a male as i originally had two which always fought but would like confirmation

Awesome little Mullets !!!
not looking to split them at this stage........

I had a look through my folders and discovered that I had more wild herp pics than I realised and thought I'd throw them in here together. I know some of the species but not all but I'm happy to just post them and see how many can be identified by the experts in here... something I am far from...
HI I am thinking of getting a few land mullets just wondering if they have any other specal needs than other large skinks. What are they worth as adalts if you could get them. How do other keepers keep them.
Just trying to get some background info on them so please be nice guys.
It's been a couple of months in the making but the new outdoor enclosure for the Land Mullet is ready to go barring a few cosmetic touches.
Today is the big day, and the three Mullet who have been raised in an indoor aquarium for the past few years were all "released" together!
Have to check this out. I can't believe it...should almost be reported!
( no links please as it IS against site rules)
And I quote "Both tame, both in same tank and get along very well"! Well of course they get along together...they are both reptiles right????
Exotics, even though Australia has the most reptiles species and diversity of anywhere else on the planet there are still quite a lot of other awesome species out there. What are your favourite exotic species?
For me there's a couple:
Common Green Forest Lizard - Calotes Calotes
Perfect specimen.... I suspect male but not 100% sure.......

Okay, on Monday we found a Land Mullet in my backyard. At first we thought it was a blue tongue so we fed it banana and kiwi fruit. (I could only find 1 snail!)
I'm not going to keep it, I'm just encouraging it to come back.
We think its a girl. It's called Spiffy and it appears to be...
When I was looking into the rainforest earlier today, I saw a reptilian head emerge from behind a rock. I gasped in excitement and watched, thinking it could be my first sighting of a Far North Queensland snake, but it was only a lizard. Not that that's not exciting, of course!
It was a...
Does anyone on here keep Land Mullets ?? I have recently acquired a pair...... & wondered if anyone on here had any experience with them that they wish to share ????
This girl is a nudge over 60cm in length & is extremely temperamental as most Mullets are.....
Please post any photos or any...
New member, chanced upon this site in my quest to ID a type of skink my wife caught in a fox trap baited with a piece of mullet today. She was trying to catch a feral cat in our newly declared Voluntary Conservation area...
We eventually identified the reptile as a "Land Mullet"...
The impending move of my blueys nt an outdoor pit has me contemplating what to do with my six foot tank and I'd love som ideas or even pics if anyone has any of small critters who will live happily ia colony type arrangement.they don't have to be stunning, I have a lot of interest in lovely...
50 cm +
Suspected female, massive animal, feeds on anything
- will consider trade for levis or golden tail pair.
I'm in the process of moving house and will have more space for pits than room indoors.
I'm trying to work out what would be good lizards for pit's in Sydney. Land Mullet's are top of the list. It would be good to hear from anyone who keeps them in a similar way, or from anyone who is breeding them.
Im in the market for a new camera cause the one i have is getting on with age. I find that is is hard to take good photos of my animals with. Kinda has a yellow tinge to it.
Is it worth buying an entry level SLR or should i just stick with a point and shoot??
I do enjoy taking nice pictures...
Which herp books/author do you read or use as your bible?
eg, Shine, Hoser, Barker/Barker, Swan plus many more?
I have found Swan to be easy to follow and interesting.
In my opinion, spending some dollars on good reading/reference material is a must, more should do it!
just wondering a few things about lizards,
1 whats the biggest handleable lizards/monitors Australia has
2 whats the most colored lizard?
3 can ya feed incect eaters grass hoppers/locusts/moths collected around the yard?
4 whats the most dangerous lizard to keep?
also are there any rules...
