Pattern and color:
- Hard to distinguish
like in most varanid species; It seems like only
experienced Monitor Lizard keepers can determine (guess) the sex. The only 100%
guarantee for a male is showing the hemipenis externally. In the other case
laying eggs seems to be the only 100% guarantee for an animal of the female sex.
Animals per enclosure:
- These animals are
preferably kept solitarily. Their toleration level towards each other
isn't that high in smaller enclosures.
20º - 25º Celsius.
minimum 15º Celsius.
- Rodents, crabs, fish,
- clutches up to 20 eggs.
They are able to lay more than 1 clutch a year.
- This species has by
far the greatest range of all monitor lizards. Also the most subspecies
have been described within this species. It is suspected that even more
subspecies within this species will be described in the future.
