Heh. I didn't mean that as a sleight. I meant that even just the appearance of some reproductive success with a species like Dumeril's is cool to see, mostly because it's so rarely seen. I didn't mean for you to get all up in arms. It's not like I'm the authority on monitor keeping. I have hatched argus and both ackies since I got into monitors about two years ago, though, and I'm comfortable considering that a good start.

About the tails... Obviously basking temps don't effect how long or short tails grow. What I meant, however, is that the tails seem super skinny to me. They seem skinny in that there isn't much to speak of for a fatty tail base, and less beyond that. Like I said, it just strikes me. Even healthy tree monitors develop some weight in their tails, so maybe it's something specific to dumerilii.

I don't know. It's why I asked. Low basking temps always result in a fat-bodied monitor with underweight limbs. Again, not saying your care sucks, but yours definitely have big bellies in comparison. It made me curious.

Oh, and frugivorous monitors are lame. Just sayin'.














J/K, bra.
