I think there's a big controversy on this subject. Do they really just give up on life or just adapted to situation? Of course there is a way to do it. I think you're supposed to do it gradually and not to stress it out to much. Certain species don't do really well being handle, but certain species you could habituate it to you.

If you really think about it, in nature it's not always perfect and they are under constant stress. They have to worry about falling prey to larger animals or monitors, but they're accustomed to that kind of stress, being outside...surrounded by predators. So it's not so far fetch that you can slowly habituate the animals to you...like learning to become part of their routine by doing thing the same way everyday or on the same schedules.

I'm not really an expert on monitors, so don't take my words to seriously. I'm just trying to carry on a conversation and discuss what I am thinking.
