Blue Tongue Skink
Based in Littleton, CO
This is a spectacular "Green Phase" Victorian type Eastern. He is from the first generation of Green Phase x Green Phase Easterns born in the USA. He has some exceptional bands and nice green over tones and a wonderful appetite. I hope he will be an excellent breeder for many generations to come.
Don Quixote is a "Green Phase" Victorian locality type Eastern Blue Tongue Skink (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides). He is a descendant of zoo stock and is one of only six founding animals (that I know of) of this type in the USA. I imported this guy in the spring of 2018 from New Zealand and he has sired several pure Eastern litters since.
Josie is descendant of zoo stock and is one of only six founding stock (that I know of) of this type in the USA. I imported this girl in the spring of 2018 and she proved out her first litter of Green Phase Easterns in 2020.
This guy is my favorite skink in my collection. He was the first born skink after I officially formed Reptile Mountain as a thing! He is from litter ID# Z1.17.01 - His sire is Boaz (Produced by the well respected Ray Gurgui) and his dam is Lydia (produced by the highly reputable Captive Bred Excellence). He was able to breed to Raptor (ID#9) in 2019 for his first breeding season siring 9 healthy bubs and has been a go to breeder ever since. His offspring are typically large and robust even for the already large and robust Northern species.
Picacho was produced by Greg Accetta of Rhode Island Blue Tongues. Greg is a top tier skink breeder in the USA. Picacho's sire is named "Alpha" produced by Captive Bred Excellence and his dam is named "Sweet D" produced by James Wilson. He is SaltNLight's littermate. Picacho is a F2 on his Sire's side (from a USFWS seizure) making him exceptionally closely related to wild Northerns in Australia! This alone makes his offspring desirable to many breeders, collectors, and pet owners because they are closer to Australian animals.
Quaker is from Reptile Mountain Litter ID# Z1.17.06 - Her sire is Boaz ( produced by skink breeding icon Ray Gurgui) and her dam is Lydia (produced by Captive Bred Excellence who has a top tier reputation). Quaker bred with Phineas in 2017 for her first season and gave birth to 11 healthy babies. She is one of my most consistent dams yielding high litter numbers.
Sage is from the first generation of Green Phase x Green Phase Easterns born in the USA. She has some exceptional reddish and nice green over tones and a wonderful temperament. I'm hope she will be ready to breed for the 2022 season.
Spirit is from Litter# G11.20.08 - This animal is an exceptionally colored classic type Northern who will hopefully produce some amazing colored babies in the seasons to come. This breeder has traceable lineage going back 7 generations that leads to Australian animals.
Stevie Nix comes from a line of USFW seized Australian skinks. She is from a known F1 (Sire) and known 50% F4 (Dam) pairing. Both her parents have since died. These details make this female and her offspring some of the most closely related specimens to wild Australian Northerns there are in North America. Her babies are usually very rich in color and considerably active animals. She is one of my very best female breeders.
