Thanks FR,

Wow you owned a zoo building company, that's very cool.

I have read though, that if you wish to keep a nile for its entire life, you have to have a room for it, that it's not possible to keep large adults in a cage. Is this just not true? This is coming from Nile owners so I am not sure what to think, you know.

To be honest, I would MUCH rather have a large cage than set aside an entire room.

Also the fan for the Savannah was mounted outside of the cage, three feet away, and only turned on intermittently, to circulate air. Humidity was 70% in cage at all times, and had deep substrate for burrowing and a pool. I had been told 40% was incorrect for Savs, but I was also told that glass terrariums did not have good air quality so they needed periodic air circulation if you kept them in one. This was in the 90's...I'm sure that I have missed a lot about monitor husbandry since then.

Thanks for taking the time to inform me about all of this. I have never killed a reptile and I don't plan to start

I am lucky enough to live in Olympia, WA, the second most humid city in the US!
