Default Albino Blue Tongue Skink availability

Anyone seen any albino blue tongue skinks for sale in the UK/EU? Or even the melanistic ones, because they are stunning.

Here is a pic

Both the albino and melanistic blue tongues were scincoides produced in Australia some years ago. If I remember rightly, they've been unable to get permits to ship them across state lines, let alone out of Aus! Personally I don't like the albinos but the melanistic are amazing! They are very like major skinks Egernia major...

Mark.

thanks for the information guys. The melanistic ones are stunning in my opinion, I would very much like to find out if there are any outside of Oz. I doubt I could afford one though haha

Default albinos

Hi All,
First time posted on this forum. Am one of the largest breeders of bluetongues in Australia and have many of the colour forms plus more that you mention. I have many albinos and the melanistics, but my favourites are the leucistics. When I work this forum out I will post some pictures. I know this does not help out in the purchase but one day Australia will relax its laws.

Welcome to the forum!
Would be great if you could put a thread up of some of your collection!
