Sound on if you like to hear the crunching, lol! Sorry for the lack of lighting but I opened Hercules’ enclosure to feed and mist him and he was finishing his tasty shed treat so I grabbed my phone to record.
My future breeding plans change all the time and I didn’t think I’d ever add a Monitor Lizard to those breeding plans, however once I’m more set in a better location I might consider purchasing a male and having Argus clutches every now and then in the future.
It’s a species I’ve really come to enjoy and have learned a lot about this year. Theyre a perfect size for people who want something bigger than a Bearded Dragon but can’t handle the size of Nile or Asian Waters. The females stop growing at around 3 feet and the males get about 5 feet. I’d say both of those sizes are fairly reasonable for a serious monitor keeper.
I don’t know yet. My plans and ideas change all the time because I’m always learning about new species I enjoy and end up not enjoying others as much as I thought I would.
Do you think Sprinkles is a boy? Sprinkles is currently 11 grams and to me this looks like a boy bulge but I’m looking for some more experienced opinions. (Hopefully Sprinkles will forgive me for posting this photo 😂.
