Thanks for a well-thought response! I would agree that they seem to be E. m. multicarinata. I wouldn't be surprised if other subspecies overlapped in distribution with them here though. There seems to be a lot of variability in appearance between individuals.
Due to my current circumstances I have to keep them in cardboard boxes outside (sounds crude at face value, but I assure you is actually quite ideal). One of the caveats of this method though is that if one gets out then you're probably never going to see it again. I probably underestimated the ability of the young male to jump and climb. I lost him pretty quickly, and it was a huge bummer because he had some promising red striping.

With that out of the way though, I've got another one here. It's clearly a female, and from the way her lower belly sags and plumps out, seems to be gravid. She's got a very slender build and mostly olive tones. Check out the differences in the belly scale color between the two females. One female has brightly colored belly scales with bursts of yellow, while this new female has a mostly cool-gray belly.
