Hello everyone,

I have a basic Wildlife license and picked up my first licenced Gecko t he other week. For the sake of my license I asked and I was told it's a "Northern" Marbled Velvet Gecko by the previous owner, but some pet store folk have ID'd him as a "Western".

One pet store also told me it's illegal to have a Northern (Victoria based), the previous owner wasn't 100% sure and thinks he's a Northern but from what I can tell he is a Western.

Despite all this confusion, I later found an old photo of him by matching his pattern in the local pet store before he was purchased from the previous owner, the same pet store that stated it's illegal to have Northerns.

Any further clarification on his ID for peace of mind? He is apparently abit over 2 years old.

Thanks in advance! (His name is Zippo :) )
