We have a few bits going on, the beccari were all males, so no breeding from them, but they make a nice display, the croc monitors are currently breeding and we have some eggs from them, the green trees have started mating now, the boscs have a clutch incubating. Ackies are incubating, the kimberlys we have bred, but they haven't given us anything this year yet, the blue taileds have bred, the quince was a lone male, and a few other bits are still too young or don't have partners yet, but got enough to keep us busy lol.

Re: some of the monitor family

I don't see a single appropriate enclosure here. I have to say, I'm very disappointed. Monitors need a lot of space and very deep substrate.

You can't see the entire enclosures in any of those pictures, Some of the vivs are over 8ft long and 5ft deep, the crocodile monitors enclosure is actually over 15ft long. The tree monitors don't have deep substrates in their tanks as they spend most the time in the trees, they do have a deeper laying site for egg laying though. The others get areas of deeper substrate, and it thins out towards the front of the enclosures to avoid substrate being kicked out all over the floor when the monitors come out.

Re: some of the monitor family

I'd like to see the enclosures. I'm in the process of building a house and I will have enclosures built into a few walls, so I'm currently looking for a lot of inspiration.

I will take some new ones and get them up for you, the only ones there that were in a small enclosure was the black trees and one of the green tree monitors, we had a fire at the old place we used to keep them, and all animals had to be moved out, they were temporarily kept in a smaller cage until their new one was built and they could be moved into them.

Yea it wasn't good, but we had over 1000 animals in the building, and we got very lucky to only lose the few that we did.

At least your animals were spared, Pro Exotics lost all of theirs...

Yea we got very lucky, a few things had to downgrade cage size for a few weeks, and we lost a few great animals, including a rhino iguana that we had had for over 15 yrs, so it was a hard blow, but we are very greatful that it wasn't worse.
