    I've got a 7ft viv and I am looking to get my first Ackie monitor. Can't wait!! What I am stuck on is the positioning of the lighting as the biggest vivs I have had before this one are 5ft so only needed one basking bulb to heat the viv. But with a 7ft viv and the high temperature requirements...

    Hi. I really can’t find anything close to a concrete answer for this. My dad is a pilot and occasionally for a week at a time no one is home. I don’t want to get a pet and then have to immediately relocate it. Can an ackie monitor be left alone for that long?

    Hi I have not posted in a bit, but could use some help. I am looking for some fake rock ledges that are not magnet based. I have an ace monitor breeding tank, and the little guys like to pull magnetic ledges away from the wall, which breaks the magnetic force between them, and drops the monitors...

    I noticed my ackie has been acting peculiar today and thought I'd ask for advice before I chance a visit to a vet. For starters they spent a chunk of the day spying on me out of their hide as I was doing tasks; usually they carry on with their business ignoring what I do. The bit that had me...

    Hi Everyone, One of my ackies has gotten very big over the last few weeks. I have two and she is much thicker than my other female. I feed them dubia roaches every other day (they are both a year old). I cut back on the amount of roaches I give her, but she always eats like shes starving so I...

    So I've got a 7-month-old Ackie that I've had for 3 weeks now. Eats regularly and everything, I've got the temps and humidity right in my enclosure, but man does he sleep a lot. He'll go down to his hidey-hole underground to sleep at around 9 pm. I typically have the lights on from 11 am...

    Hello, I have been trying to decide which monitor species to get. I really like both species I know kimberlies cost more but price really isn't an issue. so I guess it really just comes down to temperament. I hear ackies can be pretty tame once they get to know you and gain your trust. Is this...

    Hi everyone, First time posting! As the title says I am researching into getting an Ackie Monitor which I am very excited about :) I will probably be moving house in a few months so it will give me enough time to do my research to make sure I am properly prepared. I have a question about...

    Hi Guys, I'm doing my research on keeping Ackie monitors, and i need some suggestions on plants for their enclosure. A few articles i have read, tend to lean on no plants as they will just dig them up anyway, but this makes me wonder about enrichment. So are there any plants you would...

    Hi, I am looking for a male ackie monitor (varanus acanthurus). I would prefer him to be in the age of 1-2 years. I have a 5x2x3 vivarium waiting for him with 12 inches of substrate so plenty of room for him to dig around. I am willing to collect him if he is around a 100 mile range of Newcastle...

    Hello, I thinking of buying Yellow Ackie Monitor, but I don't really know the size. Some people say that it grows to 30in and some say that they grow only to 16in.

    I have to sell my ackie monitors due to a shop closure where they have been one of the main displays and unfortunately I cannot fit their viv into my house. The viv is Perspex lined and has all the lights and heating necessary for the best health of the Ackies. The trio consist of a male black...
