I recomend starting with something else, tegu and snake experience does not cross over to varanid husbandry. In fact, in most cases holds you back. In order to progress, you will have to unlearn much of what you thought was important.

In order to keep and progress with monitors, you must have a handle on what your observing. The species you picked is not commonly or even occasionally bred in captivity, I think once or twice in the states. So its not one you want to learn with. Its a species you can TEST what you learned with other species.

They are EXTREMELY shy, and will avoid behavior in front of you at all costs. They are what we in the trade call the empty cage monitor. You may as well have an empty cage.

If you want a species that will enteract with you, Try Argus monitors, they are so much fun, they can be TOOOOo much fun. They will teach you about monitors and in a hurry.

Do not let your ego harm your chances of enjoying keeping monitors.

Most that start with yellow monitors, END with yellow monitors. Make the right choice. Cheers
