Savannahs, I wanted to learn what it took to breed them eventually. I know most monitor breeders don't care to learn what makes them tick differently than other monitors because there is no money in it, but I am personally curious. As for the Nile, it's a funny story. I was actually going to go buy a water monitor from a guy that week, and instead I came in to a local reptile shop and found a Nile that was very interesting. It wasn't quite as vicious as the general Nile, it did some tail whipping at first, then was seemingly pretty curious. The shop owner said that I could take it for fifteen bucks if I wanted, and I had a good feeling about it, so I did. Ever since, he's only bitten me twice, both times during feedings when I got to close to his food. He's active and healthy. I've been keeping reptiles for fifteen years. But I think it's very fair to say that it's not the length for which you've kept reptiles, because I've met plenty of people who have had reptiles longer than I, and most certainly do not know even the basics of keeping things like tropical species. Of course that's just my experience.
