I reponded a bit below, so I will try and address another area here.

you asked if they are tree nesters etc in nature. That does not traslate to captivity. First, unless your cage is and outdoor cage, the bottom is not the earth. And unless you put a nest box up in a tree, you will not tree nest them.

Your task is to provide something suitable in your cage, which is neither aboreal or teresstrial, its a cage.

When you think about nature and what occurs there, you can take some hints, like is there a specific medium they use, like the rotting inside of a tree, or a particular soil type, which is very important with other varanid species. But the aboreal or gound thing does not translate in most cases. We have cages that rarely exceed the ceiling height which is not aboreal by any means.

Good luck and best wishes
