I'm looking for breeders of Dwarf Monitors to make sure I can obtain a couple of unrelated specimens. I do not mind which species - provided they do not attain a length greater than 2.5 ft, so any of the following should be ok:

Ackies (V. acanthurus)
Peacock (V. auffenbergi)
Timor (V. timorensis)


I have alloacted a 6'x3'x2' space for them so there is plenty of room for a trio if available for the right price.

Dave.

Tempted as I am to go for the peacock monitor, Berkshire is a bit too far from Notts.

Where in UK are you caninebrand? Are the ackies related? How much without the viv and equipment?

I need guaranteed sexes because if I end up with 2 males I don't have the room to separate them when they start chomping on eachother.
