    Do New Guinea Blue Tongue Skinks Adept Well to Captivity.

    I am considering buying a Blue Tongue Skink ,and wanted to know if the wild caught ones adept well to captivity. I can buy a captive bred baby instead ,but would rather start with a sub-adult/adult Blue Tongue Skink. I already have a 55 gallon set up for it ,but like I said if a captive baby would be alot safer then I could get a captive baby instead. When I say "safer" I mean alot less likely to die.

    Why not just get a sub-adult or adult captive bred?

    Check out these listings. I saw one the other day a guy was looking for a home and was giving them away.
