I think this is what Craig and I are trying to say. The pictures of the babies do not look like T. g. keiensis. The two adults you just posted DO look very much like keiensis. I'm not sure from what you wrote if you're familiar with it (if so, I don't mean to imply that you do not) but there are other T. gigas subspecies. T.g. gigas looks just like your babies -- very different from T.g. keiensis.
Thanks for posting the pictures. It's always good to know who's got what out there. And I hope you take this as a helpful post. I simply do not believe those babies look anything like T.g. keiensis, regardless of where they were allegedly collected. I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you if you've been in the reptile business for a while that there is a great deal of misrepresentation that goes on, so you can never be 100% sure. Just the same, thanks for posting and best of luck with your animals.
Edward

P.S. If you do ever breed T. g. keiensis, I think you would be the first to do so as far as I know. So I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
