 Varanus salvator ziegleri

A good friend had these (an importer) and at first they appeared pretty dehydrated with a fairly thin tail base and he asked if i could try and get to full health/weight for there size so into one of my vivs they went and i had the temps etc tweaked up a tad to help 90f ambient , 135f hot spot and humidity at 85% to 90% , big water dish and hides , nice result as the conditions must have suited them and they are now thriving and pounding down gut loaded crix , locusts , calsi worms and snipped up mice ................... yep you guessed it now i can’t part with them so they are mine now (for a decent price) , i now have plans for a monitor shed/house in the garden as my next project to house these when they are larger along with the cumingi pair.
