Hi again, Well I keep asking questions because your new and may not have an understanding of varanids. Like your statement of big monitors, You said you want a big monitors, but desert monitors are not big, they are medium sized. 3feet or so, with some males slightly larger.

Bengals get 4 1/2 to over five for some males. Niles, do get very large.

Even Savs can get large, a over 4 foot male is larger in mass then my breeder croc monitor male who 7 1/2 feet long.

All the size talk above is not a given, its a potential. They have the potential to reach those sizes. The reality is, there are no guarantees that they will, and as mentioned, most do not grow up at all, and that's both in captivity and in nature. In nature, the entire world is out to get neonates. In captivity, different people keep monitors, then build and launch rockets. Hmmmmmmmmm in most cases they don't seem able to figure out simple reptiles.

Whats important to them is what is important to you. What would that be?
