>>Huge load off my mind, todays the second day now, and he already finished his sweet potatoe, hes looking nice and plump. I'm going to wait about a month before I attempt to interact with him, no "forced handling: of course. Anyway thanks alot Cindy, always appreciate advice from an experienced keeper. Now that hes settled in, I got alot of reading to do.
>>Later, Joe

Well if you spend ANY time hanging on the monitor forum, you definitely will have a handle on the hands off approach for the beginning. While I do differ in feeling that with all animals you do need to work with them so that at the very least they will be accepting and tolerant of handling, I do feel initially they need an adjustment period of at least 2 weeks to a month. I think that is the single worst mistake many keepers make. Over handling can cause stress and you need to find a balance!

Feel free to shoot out questions as you need them, but def get those books!
