Hello, I work with monitors, I have raised thousands of them, also many other wild animals. I even man some wild animals. that is, have free living wild animals trust me and allow me in their lives.

The question of taming and wildness is a very odd question. Most animals can be taught that you are safe and can become very good friends with you. Its based on trust and you providing something of benefit to them. Its about them trusting you. You are the giant ugly predator.

Monitors, are by far one of the easist animals to man(to include you). The best way to do this is with positive reward.

With monitors food is the BEST reward. Your job is to make a partner out of your monitor, and it makes a partner out of you. Monitors are good at that.

Its easy and simple, but its about you. You must educate yourselve and you must have a touch. Its really not about your monitor, its just being what it is. Its afraid for its life, can you blame it.

Your female correct, well your a giant predator picking up a tiny animal, its RAPE, your raping it, You are breaking into its world its safety and you are threatening its life. And your calling the monitor mean. hahahahahahahaha, no, your the one violating the animal. This is a point you must understand. Your not the cute benolent queen. Your an ugly giant predator.

Gain its trust and let it come to you. Again, monitors are so so so easy to do that with.

So if you can get over the rape comment, then think about it and ask more questions if you like. Cheers

p.s. The rape comment is based on you breaching the animals safe zone. Animals have defensive behaviors, to run, to hiss, to bluff, to blow up and look as mean and large. They are intended to keep a predator(you) away. But if you breach those behaviors, you have broken the animals defensive behaviors. You have raped it. Some fight back, others internalize and die(to play dead, is really not playing). Your lucky, yours is fighting back.
