About Us
Welcome to Dave’s Skinks.


I have been caring for reptiles since 2000.  After graduating college in May, 2016 with a degree in entrepreneurship, I started expanding my love of being a Blue Tongue Skink pet owner into a sustainable business that helps develop a new generation of reptile enthusiasts.  Dave’s Skinks specializes in Northern and Irian Jaya Blue Tongue Skinks. Please take a look around and if you have any questions, check the FAQ below. If you don’t see your question, feel free to contact me.
A: Northern babies generally come first in late May and early June.  Irian Jaya babies arrive late June through mid August. Once babies are born, they are held for health and safety until their first or second sheds.
A: Dave’s Skinks aims to under promise and over deliver, but we always listen to our clientele. There will be an email notification sign up coming soon.
A: Irian Jaya babies are between $200-$300 and Northerns start at $350 and up.
A: If you are looking for an education on husbandry, there is no better place to start than the Dave’s Skinks Care Section. If you want to know how purchasing and shipping works. Everything you need to know about purchasing & shipping can be found in the Purchase Rules Section. After you make your purchase, I will be happy to provide general support and advice for the duration of your skink companionship.
A: I am always interested in acquiring more Northerns that align with my breeding project featuring high orange with an absence of their traditional dark side bands.  The prospects of other Australian Blue Tongue species also intrigue me.
A: It all comes down to personal preference, and your budget.  There is virtually no difference in care, affection, temperament or size.
A: CBB = Captive Born and Bred, meaning both parents were born and raised in captivity.
CB = Captive Born, meaning the mother was collected from the wild, already pregnant and gave birth in captivity.
WC = Wild Caught. Dinobot is the only one with us that is WC. All other blue tongues at Dave’s Skinks are CBB.
