Your monitor is awesome as well, there is nothing special about an Argus other than I have grown to really love her.

Just tried uploading them to an old photo bucket account I forgot I had and kept getting these annoying pop ups. Been on this site over 8 years and not sure if I ever posted pics. Is that the only way?

What is mine MDF? Will be one year in July. [URL=http://s1067.photobucket.com/user/adamh636/media/May%2030%2016001_zps1upyd9zk.jpg.html]

[/URL] Hoping for a male, transillumination method, from the side suggests male, but the tail was too thick to see ovals. The light illuminated red, suggesting male according to this BIAWAK article: http://varanidae.org/Vol3_No1_Brown.pdf Frank Retes said they may mature slower some times, each individual varies.

Not a very warm day in Denver but they still prefer the outdoor portion of their enclosure.

I’d have to put mine argus in a woolly jumper across here most the year, most be real nice to watch them outside in the sun.

Is that Croc monitor crazy or are you able to interact with it? I’ve heard their aggressive like Niles are and do not trust humans.

Tried to have the guy at monster cages make me a custom enclosure recently. The guy expected me to send him over $1000.00 which I would have gladly paid but the guy refused to have a conversation with me over the phone to go over my order. Basically only answered one email stating only the price without knowing exactly what I wanted. It was like pulling teeth trying to get the guy to have a conversation over the phone to explain exactly what I needed. This wasn’t the standard enclosures he sells, I was ordering a custom one. He definitely don’t deserve a thousand dollars of my money with customer service like that.

Croc monitors are interesting and extremely intelligent. I wouldn’t call them crazy but they’re definitely a monitor that commands respect. When I walk into my lace enclosure they’ll move around in an effort to keep a little distance. (Unless I have food in which case I have to be careful that they don’t climb up my leg!) Sometimes the female might fake charge me but I know she’s only bluffing. My lace monitors give ample and obvious warning if they’re annoyed by my presence. Croc monitors are different. They often go still when they feel threatened. If you get too close, watch out, there’s often very little warning. I wouldn’t recommend owning a croc unless you have a walk in enclosure. While cleaning or feeding you need to be able to maneuver out of their way as they won’t always move out of your way. I see idiots picking them up in pictures and on youtube. You’re just asking for trouble. A bite from a croc, or a lace, will send you to the ER and can cause substantial damage. I’m a firm believer in risk mitigation. Why handle any wild animal that has large claws and teeth? Not worth the risk.

As keepers it’s our responsibility to not get bit! Many people would like to ban the keeping of reptiles and every bite gives them ammo.

There was this place called "Dances with Snakes" back home in San Jose, CA that had an adult croc monitor. Well one time, as I was looking a a yellow anaconda the guy was holding, the other employees were trying to safely throw a few large rats inside but as soon as the lady cracked the door open, BAM! The monitor slammed the lady to the side and came running towards me and the other guy. I was 13 at the time and ran as fast as I could towards the exit. The guy was screaming at me, "he wont hurt you" but that very imposing monitor reminded me of Clever Girl from Jurassic Park, which had been fresh in my mind. Dajuice, Just build one like mine it was like $750 and I used bleached out branches from around my house. I don’t know how active your monitor is but Fiona has plenty of ground space and climbing space to exhaust herself out when I am unable to allow her to roam.

Charles, you just posted proof that you, Varanus Sapien, and Otto Glott are the same people. You all have an argus named Fiona. It’s really messed up. Pick a username and stick with it. What the hell is wrong with you?

I forgot my login and just used the one on my list. You need to seriously chill the out, right now. If you’d like you can PM me your home address and maybe I’ll show up to settle this bozo rivalry. Let it go you dumb bozo.

Charles, are you seriously threatening to beat me up? You have no idea who I am?

You keep asking for second and third chances to be taken seriously and, without fail, you pull this crap again. You need some help.
