You know, Frank, you have this fr&#%!ng uncanny ability to arrive at conclusions that are, in a way, so fundamentally basic, that i am consistently amazed that i, much less,well..like...every/anybody else, didnt reach the same concept, or that over the decades folks have been keepings these, or ANY burrowing animals, captive, that that way of considering what constitutes at least adequate housing with regard to very nature of what a burrow needs to be hasnt become standard husbandry.
Once again, your insights have forced me to re-evaluate the nature and degree of slow torture i have unknowingly inflicted on a number of monitors in my early days of a box with a light, a water dish and a branch...

Tragically, so many of the imported monitors really dont even stand a chance in captivity in the hands of people who, often with the best of intentions, really have no idea what is involved in these creatures husbandry. And, alas, there you go, again, raising the bar...jolly good show! Jolly good!
