Featured Animal - Nile Monitor
Small or juveniles Niles are recommended to start with as they are easier to tame. In captivity, they can be fed crickets, mealworms, kingworms, waxworms, butterworms, rodents, and fish. Small juveniles should be housed in at least a 20 gallon tank. Aspen bedding, or orchid bark can be used as a substrate.
Landscape with rocks, driftwood, or hollow logs. A water dish large enough for the lizard to soak in should be used. They can reach sizes of 7 feet but usually average between 5 and 6 feet.
The head and neck are long and slender; becoming more stout as the animal matures. The body is long with muscular limbs that have sharp nails on the end of each toe to aid in digging, climbing, and scratching. The tail is long, slender, very muscular, and half of the total body length. Unlike other lizards the monitors tail does not break off and regenerate. The eyes are prominent and the nostrils are close to the end of the nose.
Keep the tank between 82 and 95 during the day and 72 to 80 at night. Use under tank heating pads for a 24-hour heat source.
Monitors can obtain many parasites: HaHa Reptiles always checks for mites and ticks before shipping. We recommend that all new specimens be quarantined so that they can be checked for parasites and disease at the new location.
