Again common sense, what is the double the body length rule??? and what does it apply to? Surely not a seven foot or six foot albig.

Monitors are diurnal active lizards. And your going to give one a box that it can reach the other side, in two steps. Again, that rule is not meant for lizards or any reptile, its meant for people who want to box up an animal and not give it any kind of life.

Let me think, if your six foot tall, would you want to live your life in 12 feet????

Also, you fail to mention what is the most important aspect of monitors. A home. That's what your box should provide at the minimum. So what is a home? whats it like, etc etc?
