Aru animals have a larger back of the head, which tapers to a point at the nose.

A few blue pigments can also be seen in the mouth area. [2]


Aru animals are grass-green in color. Along the back the green is concentrated in a darker stripe and there are also several white scales. These do not form a solid line as in the Merauke animals. But other white scales can also appear scattered across the rest of the body.

Aru animals also have multiple blue scales all over their bodies.

Aru females are known for their beautiful blue gestation color (with a few exceptions). But Aru males can also be colored blue. However, this happens relatively rarely. The flanks towards the lower abdomen also have many blue scales. [3]

Aru Island localities are characterized by having specks of white dorsal scales against a green or blue-green body color. Older specimens may develop gray scales mixed in with the white. They can also develop blue side and dorsal scales. [4]


frequently a light blue wash covers the lateral and belly area. [5]
