From What I Remember, They Usually Go In Pairs.

A Figure of £"1400" sticks in my head.
So 700 for one.

They are overlly beautiful.

You seem them on the market every now and then.

ooooh yea ive seen these, beautiful and cool eyes, really intelligent looking eyes! if you know what i mean

Yea i think they vary from, about £1500-2500 for a pair, dont see them singly very often. I think the main reason ppl dont keep them is because they need a descent amount of space, arnt really handleable and arnt particularly hardy i dont think

Beautiful creatures though

emerald tree monitors

Beware of w.c emerald trees, stick to c.b. Iseen someone selling a pair for 750 a while ago umm if its seems to go to be ture it most prob is.
Most of them go for around 900 to 1500ish each they are not that common. I know a friend of a friend had a pair for sale couple of months ago for 1500 pound and were c.b. and good steady animals. wish i had the money. well worth breeding.

they are around if you look for them but not common. as said above one will go for £600 up and a pair usually £1500. i know a few people trying to breed them but to be honest the price hasn't really come down on them over the years so im guessing they aren't the easiest to breed. beautiful lizard tho and definantly next on my list. :D

Thanks for all your feedback... they do look very intelligent and have a very elegant look to them.

good info on them seems to be very scarce... Does anyone know of any care sheets available for them?

I know they can grow up to 3 foot long in size so though they are big they're not like water monitors which are just huge beasts.

I would of course want cb but I worry how well informed I would be from the person selling them If I were to come across a pair. I know it's certainly not wise to invest my time in wc as they don't often survive.

which is Varanus prasinus.
A individual or a pair of these are very close to the top of my wish list too.
Gan1 on here i believe said she had a contact somewhat locally who had some breeding.. not certain of details, i assuem they havent hatched yet as i havent heard anything.
Defo display animals from what i have heard, but so so pretty.

I have done alot of reaserch on these as in future years i will be getting some...Varanus Beccarii, Varanus Prasinus, Varanus Macraei (my personal favourite) The Prasinus are most commonly available but still uncommon in collection, also the Beccarii are sometimes on classifieds...also the normal spotted tree monitor are around now and again, never seen a Macraei in UK for sale, but they are by far the most beautiful out of the Tree Monitors.

DeanThorpe ...Prasinus is green..
