That was very well stated.If we take a look at Bluetail Monitors from the little we know of their wild diet it does not contain many rodents ,if any, as can be said with other species like Prasinus ,yet they can flourish when fed entirely with rodents(husbandry practices into account)Sure there are differences between species but when we narrow down their preferences they are very much the same.

The only difference between a Sav and a Bluetail-the Bluetail isn't from a drought climate,and will fail far before we see issues of rodent diet obesity from improper husbandry because of complication due to dehydration.Sav's can take improper condition far longer due to their greater reserves.Both eat based on opportunity,but both are capable of utilizing items outside their natural diet.
