Its funny do couse my Girl lied to me and told me that her mom was sending toys for the Kids, so the fed ex guy comes and leaves the box. i pick up the box and i trew it up in the air and caught it. i set it down and then i see it said Live Reptile i was like smiley lol. luckily He She is fine and in its new home that i had to hurry and set up.

Here Some Pics.

He She is only about 10 to 13 inches maybe still a little skiddish but lets me pet it, i feed it with tongs and get it to climb on my had to grap its food so im working on the taming part. I Love Monitors but right now we are renting a house so i could not get a nile or anything that gets to big so i wanted an Ackie and i finally got it. Yey !!!!

Congrats, nice looking Ackie. Awesome species to have.
One note is to seal up those vents in the enclosure. You don’t them them and don’t want them.
They will let all the humidity escape.
Seal them up.

That’s the point. You don’t want to be spraying it down all the time and don’t need to if you seal up the vents. Plus your substrate is still giving off a lot of moisture as it has not yet stabilized in temperature for your habitat.
