Re: Mangrove Monitor

Haven't been on here for ages, but well done on the new monitor.
They definitely are not handlers, lol. You will find he/she will hide away a lot. Try prawns as well as fish.
I have never had one, but a friend of mine has one, and he has passed on his experiences.

Thanks for the tip He is definitely very shy and reclusive, but seems he's coming around. He at least isn't taking off so quickly when I open the enclosure, and he lets me put my hands in there and near him more. Let me pet his tail the other day

As far as diet goes....he eats everything....lol. So far he's taken shrimp, chicks, mice, ground turkey, chicken gizzards and eggs. Planning on mixing more seafood into his diet once I'm able to find a source for it.

Here's a few more pics
