Hello-

Looks egyptian!
I am thinking it also could be a microlepis subspecies.
Although the jury is still out on the exact differences, the leading authorities refer to the Microlepis as being yellowish and smaller is size. Another possible indication is the lack of enlarged scales on the side.
Good luck!

on the side:I am in the process of looking for an eqyptian uro (quite the job, i tell you). I found a place that has a 14" female that is being sold by the store for an owner that had her for a couple of years. The thing is, when I got the pictures, I wasn't sure if it really looked like an egyptian. The yellow on it's face made me wonder if it is a nigerian. What does everyone think? Do you think she is pretty healthy? Should I get her if she really is an egyptian?

:Thanks for the feedback! :)
