Hey guys sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place but it's my first time on a forum took me a min to figure out how to post lol. But I just got my lil guy yesterday yes about a foot or so seems healthy nice n think fat tail clear eyes but I just wanted to get some advice from more experienced people. Before I start since I saw almost in every post out there I do know what I'm getting into have a spare room nobody has used for the past 4 years for when he gets bigger & have no problem spending a few bills a month feeding him or her.

What I really want to know is yesterday when I picked him up at the post office he was scary crazy hissing whipping tried to bite I mean a routhless lil guy lol when I got him in his temporary enclosure he was tail whipping when I passed by him I mean he really hated me ! But still he ate 2 1.5 gram pinkies and some raw turkey mixed with calcium & multi vitamins figured he's nice n healthy cuz I always hear a healthy monitor is usually a nasty one , I kept messing with his cage to get kinda use to me n when he saw me adding food n water he seemed to not mind me as much. All night he was trying to escape from any angel he could think of.

Today I'm a lil worried tho , he did like a complex 180 he's not really moving as much running around hissing or anything I hand fed him 4 or 5 large dubia roaches, 4 super worms, 1 pinky ( not sure exact size but lil bigger then yesterday's) & some ground turkey everything was dusted or mixed with vitamins & calcium except the pinky. His temp is 94 basking is 136 f highest point ambient being 80-85F he did go to the bathroom yesterday & again today (today in his water dish. Any advice or help would be really appreciated !!

And also when feeding him raw or frozen/thawed mice should I just leave it in his enclosure or remove it like I've been doing when he is done eating and if so how long is it safe to stay.
Oh yea he did whip me once when I pet him after he rested his head on my fingers so that kinda made me feel a lil Better lol
