What I meant by that so no one gets confused is that even if I put the food in his hide or tunnel, he'll wait for me to leave, or sometimes leave it for a couple hours before eating it, while I've seen other monitors scramble out of hiding for food.

Cool side temp: 26 Celsius
Basking spot temp: 56 Celsius
Humidity: 80%

I hope the image comes in somewhere, if not, here's the URL:

Dimensions: 90 x 45 x 90 cm

The enclosure has approximately 15 cm of substrate which consists of firm dirt that holds it's shape well for tunnels(which he has a network of) with sphagnum moss layered on top. The moss and dirt is a little uneven, with more dirt at the back and more moss at the front, due to his digging. He has branches for climbing and a water area in which he can completely submerge himself. He had until recently a basking temperature of 70 Celsius but I fixed that. Thanks for any help!
