I own one. They are quite beautiful, but skittish as hell. Don’t buy one if interaction is important to you. I’ve had mine for over a year now, and he still spends a lot of time hiding. Mine is at his adult size of about 26 inches. Most adult Timors I’ve heard about were from 22 - 26 inches.

As for husbandry, a basic tropical monitor (Indo species) setup will work. A tall cage will a lot of branches, plants and leaves for covering, and high humidity.

I have mine in a 5’ x 2’ x 3’, but even that seems a little small for him. (my available space is limited at the moment) I would like at some point to put him in at least a four or five foot tall cage. I think much more vertical space would be quite beneficial for this species.
