Wish they all had it this good....

The boiling springs ensure a fairly regular flow of crystal clear water. (Same water that feeds my habitats)







His sense of smell never ceases to amaze me, he knows just where to look. He will dig, flip rocks, roll logs out of the way, just to get a juicy worm or slug.



Just look at the muscle tone of that beefy front leg, combined with his digging talons for toenails, it may make people think a little. Monitors can get pissed off and lash out at their handlers. Chomper has drawn blood on me more than once.

Now look at the intensity of his focus, there was a lone worm about an inch under that dirt, he dug it up and ate it.



Always looking for snacks...



This guy can dig, he tears up a spot in seconds...










Look close on his snout, you can see the orange slime from the big slugs he was eating.

















The snails must be tastier on the other side.......
