The method of choices used with monitors, works AMAZINGLY well, on other reptiles(that's where I came up with it) Recipe keeping used on other reptiles, fails miserably with varanids.

Tegus normally(the commonly kept species) nest on the surface by stacking plant matter and making a shallow depression underneath. So its not a Giant requirement having deep substrate. But deep substrate helps with many other issues. Humidity and temp base.

Its sad the lack of respect folks have for many reptiles. They keep so many minimally because the animals does not die. Which is not a great reason do doing so. I wish folks would think in an average way, not even maximum, just average.

I spend lots of time in the field with wild reptiles and seeing folks think there is no otherway then to keep them in a shoebox, well makes me throw up.

They can keep them anyway they want, but at least they should understand their are many ways and many of those ways benefit the reptile. Cheers
