    Hi all, we have a year old bosc (oscar), hes a cracking chap, tame as a dog, loves his cuddles. Even poops on paper for easy cleaning. I was wondering how often we can feed him chicks, hes 90% on locusts, dubia roaches, and earth worms. We give him a mouse every other day. Hes growing fast, is...

    Hi all, So, amongst the various advice out there, many people iterate over and over again that Bosc monitors need to dig. A while ago, I bought a new tank with a foot of substrate. He does not dig. I've tried increasing the % of sand, or dropping it (substrate is Coir / Yellow Sand mix - no...

    Just to be clear, this is hypothetical, I am not intending on doing it, but someone recently asked me if it was possible to house a Sulcata Tortoise and a Bosc/Savannah Monitor together. My immediate response was no, but later I began thinking actually, why not? Coming from the same area the two...

    Hey all, My 3ft Bosc hasn't eaten properly for about a month now. Took him to the Vet last week and got it sorted. He's only eaten a couple of medium mice since (ignored the rest) and he's getting really skinny as a month off food catches up with him. I want to take him back to the Vet. BUT...
