I also think a lot of good keepers got tired of giving advice to novice keepers only to be yelled at or ignored..

now i was under the assumption monitors bred without cycling and that a sexually mature pair (regardless of species, though the only successful breeding account of griseus i can recall stated they required brumation ) will typically begin breeding on their own?

but with no sexually mature monitors of my own i cant say one way for sure, unless of course your saying you never kept any pairs of monitors together.

also how was your experience with rudicollis as a captive as far as how often you got to see how it , how fast it grew, how often an what did u feed it,being a larger varanid did you find a preference for rodents to insects ? ,did it seem to burrow alot ? what method of caging did you use? sorry to bombard you with questions but there is like zero good information in regard to any of the commonly imported monitors and any and all information is directly correlatable to my on going experiences with indicus


and which other species have you kept?
