Thank you again for the input. I do acknowledge that I am getting advice from some great monitor keepers and for that I have the utmost respect. I am taking all of the advice given and I am looking into other monitor species. I am still reading and searching for information on the yellow monitors but am opening up to possibly others.

I do understand that I should have asked a more specific question and for that I am sorry for the confusion. I have a large 8’ x 4’ x 6’ enclosure with 3 locations to mount heat lamps. I have multiple florescent light fixtures that I plan on installing, and lot of cork and logs to fill the enclosure with. As for hides, I have 4 hides: two on each side of the enclosure, one at about 4’ above the floor and one on the floor. The enclosure averages 85 degrees and has 2 hot spots that are at 120 degrees. I have a misting system that I can program to run in short or long intervals and a large 3.5’ water dish with a pond filter. So far that’s what I have for an enclosure and I am still working on getting it fine tuned.

I am open to suggestions on monitors that may be good fits for me, and truly do welcome all suggestions. I am not really big on the ackies but do like the peach throats, mangroves, blue tails, green and blue trees and of course the yellows. I am not looking to handle the monitors often just from time to time and don’t even care if they are often seen.

Truly, thank you CROCDOC2 and FR. Your inputs have been very appreciated and same to you lizardheadmike. I realize that gaining the experience will come with time and practice.

Thank you all
Anthony D
