    I love this guy. Incredible. Thanks for posting.

    In your opinion, do you think the monitor broke the enclosure initially. Then, as snakes do, it finds an escape hole and escapes all the way to his death. Expensive meal. I wouldn't put it past him to have calculated the entire plot. Monitors are just way too clever. Love them!

    "If something can happen with animals, it will happen" Never a truer word spoken....

    Totally get what he is saying about its a relief to know the life has ended, rather than just an escape. I lost 2 Bells frogs recently, was worried when I thought they escaped and are pro-creating all over my neighbourhood disturbing the eco system. Was kinda relieved when I found their skeletal remains in a dry disconnected tube behind the tanks water feature a month later. Sad lesson. Made a mistake. Learned from it. That's the least you owe for taking the life of the animal.
