So when working with the larger species such as Crocs and Waters did you continue to feed daily as they matured or does the frequency slow a bit with the larger size of the meal? I remember seeing that pic in the book 'Giant Lizards' of the author sitting with a huge salvator and often wondered with an animal that big what the feeding schedule would be. I would imagine in the wild for an adult monitor feeding would be opportunistic and if they came across say a dead carcass of some sort would they gorge themselves then go a few days for digestion? In captivity is it best to feed a consistant amount daily or larger amounts while skipping a few days between meals.
The one in that book definately hasn't missed to many meals! haha
