Hi Vic.

Good questions. First, I don't think most varanids are suitable for this type enclosure, they are just too destructive.

For instance, ackies would take the dirt under leafs and put it in the pond the first hour they are in there. Such species as the gouldi types, again would destroy the cage.

So far, these prasinus are not bothering the cage what so ever. Even the way the borrow, is by pushing their nose in and wiggling. So its not messy.

The cage is fiberglass, so while it looks like its hard to clean, its not. Also so far, they tend to deficate from the horizontal log at the window. hahahahahahahaha in one place.

The water is simple, it has a remote bucket with a submersible pump, Its valved to pump the water into the cage or into another bucket and thrown out. I then use a bucket head, which is a vaccum that goes on a homer bucket(home depot stuff) They are very inexpensive($20) and I vaccum out the remaining water and stuff. So far, once a week.

All in all, I am surprised at how little maintenance there is. Even the humidity stays high due to the waterfall and there has been little need to spray the cage.

Anyway, so far so good.

The main problem is, if fuzzies are given alive, they will wander into the water and drown, as its all down hill. So i put them in a bowl.

Did that help, ask more if you like. Cheers
