Female Northern Bluetongue Breeders — 2021

Posting photographs and information for each of my 2021 Female Breeders.

(Some of my females from 2018 and earlier that bred this year — 2021 — are only listed on an older page.)

 

 

EOS. Born June 2019. She is one of my European ‘Fire Opal’ lineage.

 

EOS. Female ‘Fire Opal’.

 

ULURU. Born June 2019. She is one of my European ‘Opal Fire’ lineage. She has some very serious chew-marks and bruises from male breeders. She should heal fine.

DARWIN. Born June 2019. She is another female from my European ‘Fire Opal’ lineage. Northern Blue-tongues are fairly common around the city of Darwin in the Northern Territory, Australia. The city (and my skink) are named, not surprisingly, after the great evolutionary biologist and explorer Charles Darwin.

Godzilla Northern Bluetongue skink
GODZILLA. Probably the largest female of all, Godzilla is over 24 inches in length and weighs around 1400 grams. She was born around 2016 and raised as a pet. I acquired her in the fall of 2019 and this will be her first year breeding. Very mellow although she looks a little miserable in the photo!

 

HYPATIA. Another very large female. Not sure of her age as I acquired her as an adult but probably around 6 or 7 years old. She has a slight under-bite, not uncommon in captive blue-tongues, but it doesn’t impact her health. She’s a great eater! This is her first year breeding.

 

 

Sarandon Blue Tongue Skink
SARANDON. She was born in 2019 but not certain of the month. She was produced by a breeder in California, and this is her first year breeding. She’s a chow hound! She is the sister of Margulis but not from the same litter as she was born a year later.

 

 

SARANDON. Born 2019 in Southern California.

 

MARGULIS – Female — Magulis is the sister of Sarandon, but born a year earlier in 2018. Margulis was about to shed when photos were taken, and she displays normally brighter colors. Margulis and Sarandon, I was told, are out of James Fenn ‘magma’ stock. Both great eaters so hoping they produce robust babies.

 

MARGULIS — Female — ready to shed.

 

 

GLYCON – Female – European ‘Fire Opal’ line. Born June, 2019.

TULSI – Female – Born June, 2018

 

 

SIGORNEY – Female – Born 6/18/2018.

 

Sigorney has quite a detailed genealogy. She was produced by another breeder and born on 6/18/18, and then raised as a pet in Southern California. I acquired her in the summer of 2020, sex unknown. She bred here in February 2021.

Now this is her genealogy, complements of the original breeder. [Hang on to your chair in case you feel dizzy.]

Sigorney’s parents were named Chloe and Odin. Chloe was born in 2015 and her parents were Calypso and Thor. Thor was produced by Jessica Gearheart in Nevada in 2011 — and his parents were Tibs [Dad] — (produced by Zach BTS Forum from Nikko and Peach in 2008); and Tang from a breeder in Arizona.

Calpyso was purchased as an adult from Sarah Holt (Texas) who had obtained her from a reptile show in Oklahoma (Critter Dome). Odin was produced by Austin Molynuex in 2014. His parents were Darwin (mom) produced by James Wilson; Darwin’s parents were from a male produced by Jeff Green and a female produced by James Fenn; Odin’s father, Elliot, was produced by Justin Julander from a male and female obtained from Andrew Seike.

{As a coincidence, I also have a female named Darwin (out of European stock but produced by me), and a female named Calypso, also produced by me. They are not the skinks of the same names in Sigorney’s family history.}
