 Ackies!!!!!!!!!!

i having been researching this monitor for about a month and a half now. i start building the cage after christmas. the size is going to be 3 ft wide, 2 ft deep, and 5 ft tall. i will have a foot and a half of dirt substrate, a few clay pots as hides, a bunch of huge logs to climb to different basking spots and a basking spot. here is a pic of idea: (tell if anything should be changed)

I would say to atleast double the width of your set up and maybe add a foot of depth to it unless you are planning on building something larger after 6 months or so

You really don’t need a whole lot of height for ackies, they’re not tree monitors. I think adding a foot or two to the length and using several feet of the heighth for substrate might be an idea.

I own a Timor, pretty skittish species, just to prepare you.

I used to have a Timor, never saw him at all...only way to tell if he was alive or not was the lack of smell of dead animal.
