    I recently got a baby CB Savannah Monitor. I did the research before purchasing so I am not worried about the enclosure, but I was hoping any one who has owned one before can provide advice on feeding. It is very skittish to take food and I have only seen it eat twice and only a small amount...

    I'm currently building an 8x4x4 enclosure for my savannah monitor. I am planning to do a wood frame lined with vinyl. I was hoping to get some info for how to properly ventilate the enclosure. What size vents? Should vents be level to soil for proper thermal gradient? Are fans needed? Any other...

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone here has a female savannah monitor, how large do they get? Males get really big but all caresheets state that females get smaller, so can anyone post a picture of their female bosc monitor I am really curious.

    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...

    I have his hot side set to 110, warm side is about 85. I feed him crickets twice a day ( around noon and around 8 ) and he each time I let him eat until he gets full then I take the crickets out. He is active and he likes to just lay out around the basking area or just lay out on a random spot...

And he bit me and grabbed my finger he then held on to my finger for about 3 minutes. I didn't want to pull away in case it hurt him and had no...

    Hey guys, So- my female Savannah has become a monster, easily quadrupled her size and weight over the past 3-4 months... all's well there. I got a young male about a month ago who isn't doing as well though I'm afraid. When he first got here, he ate 2 small fuzzy mice, and sure enough, the day...
