'fraid not mate. The viv is only about 2ft deep so nowhere near big enough. Best looking at different monitor species. Ackies would be a good option : )
Totally agree. He wouldn't regret getting ackies.

Also boscs really aren't climbers. Like most of the bigger lizards they are land lubbers.

A pair or trio of dwarf monitors of some sort would be a much better bet. In general an 8'x4'x4' is minimum for an adult bosc. I'm in the process of building a 12'x6'x8' for my boy...
