....You own a nile and a couple of savs for a year or so and your on here arguing with Frank Retes' advice to people. When I started keeping Varanids there were perhaps 3 books on the subject the internet as we know it today really didn't exist. I got a nile which I kept for over 15yrs btw (how long have you been keeping herps?). Within a month of getting him and finding more avenues to research I discovered waters which are my favorite species and I keep to this day and would have most likely started with had I been aware of them first.
Legalities of keeping niles in fl. aside I would not have started with a nile in this day and age of readily available knowledge and a much better availability of species to chose from upon doing the proper research.
I really have to question the judgement of someone who claims to have done the research on monitors and then gets niles and savs in this day and age,
