Re: Red ackie monitor

Hi, I will offer some advise on the Spiny tailed monitor later, but first I will say that feeding a varanid (of any species) a diet based on lean meats, turkey mixes etc, will definitely result in a shortened lifespan, whole prey are superior in every respect.
Vertebrate prey can be offered to V. acanthurus (not necessarily just rodents) but inverts should also be offered regularly.
