KEEPERS of large VARANIDS

Post by Alexander P. Whitehou » Tue, 26 Apr 1994 15:02:42



I've been fortunate to make the acquaintance of several experienced herpers
who are knowledgeable about care and maintenance of monitors.  Would like to
hear from others.  Particularly about raising some of the larger species,
e.g., Varanus salvator (water monitors).  Interested in learning from the
experiences of others.  I'm knowledgeable from "book" studies but need to
hear from those who "KNOW" about the subject from years of first hand
experience.
