The hobby, I've been keeping reptiles for fifteen years. I only took on my first monitor lizard a year ago. Only after months and months of consideration and reading and such things that I think people should do before getting a monitor. My nile has, like I said, shown a huge improvement in confidence while I'm around, and both my savannahs are still happy and healthy off of the invert diet. The savannah's are honestly not scared of me all that much, as long as I don't make movements towards them. If I lay my hand in the cage, he'll inspect it, then generally leave it alone. I'd say they're getting more comfortable around me, and I've only pulled them out of their cages but a very few times just to do big cleans or add things to the enclosures to keep it "new" for them. I'll be building new enclosures for them in the next few months.
