Hi Anthony,

I am not sure you do understand. Your question is asked as if there is a specific way to Breed Melinus(the yellow monitor)

Like you would find for some tort or colbrid thats been bred for decades.

The problem is, in the U,S. there have only been a few breedings, and they were not taken to generations or even several clutches from one female.

In fact, with monitors, its not like other reptiles. You know, where all you have to do is follow instructions and success will come.

Such species as ackies are about as close it the varanid work comes to repeatable success.

The real problem is Space, medium to large monitors REQUIORE a fair amount of space. Say you have a 15 by 20' snake/reptile room, that room could house a fair number of individuals of various species. Yet, that entire room would be small for one pair of melinus. Hmmmmmmmmm they can reach nearly five feet and are bulky.

Back to ackies, they require the space of a large boid.

All varanids are very mammal like, very very active, do stuff everyday, etc. Any species of monitor can get across that room In a few seconds, hmmmmmmmmmm or less.

You know my recomendation, get a pair of ackies and you will have lots and lots of fun.

If you actually want real info for that species, call Forth worth zoo. There is no specific guide to success, with varanids, its about about how versitale and aware the keeper is. And is the keeper willing to spend lots of money and work their bums off. Cheers
