Wow, that is visually spectacular, and cool "sneaky photos" of behvior. That enclosure is beautiful, and no doubt incorporates the important principals of monitor husbandry.

A practical question for you FR, designer of elaborate and beautiful enclosures: Will it be labor intensive to clean, do monitors defecate all over,on perches, basking areas,within the burrows, etc.? As you know, some reptiles make it sort of easy, i.e. my eublapharine geckos, and even indigos tend to mostly defecate in one corner, making clean up simple. Are there tricks to keeping this enclosure clean or just old fashioned attentive maintenance? Is it sort of like a well managed aquatic system, where biolgical breakdown occurs, soil bacteria, etc? Or remove the feces, just part of the game?

thank you, Vic
