Hi Wayne,
thanks for that, it always pays to ask! Though being an exotic vet doesn`t mean they`re experts on Varanids.. (But I trust this vet`s advise)!
You`v e done exeptionally well to raise your monitor for 5 yrs, and still have him in good health and condition, unfortunately, you`re in a TINY minority, VERY sad, and no end to the slaughter in sight.. The reason I asked was because you didn`t know they had a nictitating membrane, so I thought you were a newcomer(oops)!
The fact is, diet`s no more important to health and longevity than all the other conditions needed to support them...
I think it`s extremely important to remember that there`s more than one way to do these things, to be so narrow minded as to think anyone with a different method that clearly works must somehow be wrong??
Most people who take part in these discussions are virtual beginners, so much misinformation gets passed around as "fact", when it`s nothing of the sort! (Not directed at any specific individual)....
But that`s the nature of the internet, and the hobby...
