    Does anyone in Australia currently hold Varanus parsinus in captivity?

    What would people pay for these monitors if you could keep them?

    no1 to my knowledge (and anyone elses knowledge that iv asked) holds these in captivity but if someone did i imagin they would demand GTP prices as they are pretty much the same thing but for the monitor finatics

    not to mention they are the only monitor that isin easy to breed/raise young

    the closest you can get to these is the canopy goanna that steve irwin breeds at australia zoo but i dout he would sell any into the private herp trade he also holds rusty monitors but again they are all released as he breeds them

    Kenshin,

    You really should make sure you know what you are talking about before you post.

    There are quite a few species that are hard too raise. Varanus glebopalma, Varanus pilbarensis, eremius.. and a whole bunch of exotic stuff. Also canopy goannas are supposedly quite hard too.

    errr he said any1 IN AUSTRALIA i know they are held and bred overseas.... not much isint

    as far as hardness well emeralds are apparently the hardest with high hatchling mortality rates and canopey goannas are pretty much kept exactly the same as emeralds as they are vary similar

    the ones you listed are difficult for various reasons but emeralds and canopeys are just hard.....

    edit: for more info on emerald tree monitors contact the guy that runs a site called Mikes Monitors...... i havent seen the site in quiet some time but he breeds emeralds
