    I have a couple but need to ask Smitti permission as he is included in the pictures! He hasn't been out and about lately though due to cooler weather. In short it's way to damn cold here!!!

    This scalaris is just short of maturity. The baritji are a breeding pair.

    I know I already have tristis monitors, but I thought it would be interesting to see if there's a difference between wild caught and captive bred in terms of behaviour. Plus, they were too cute to resist.

    Teeth and claws dug in deep once he "settled" .. I'm going to move him into a inside high traffic area so he can get used to people again....

    Okay update and a warning!! If you get bitten by your animals wash it out extremely well.. I have spent the past 3 days in hospital having treatment on an infection from my monitor bite it spread very fast after a few days.. and now I am being monitored very closely.. maybe under the knife kinda stuff.. so be careful all..

    I've been bit by spiders snakes skinks and crocodiles and yet nothing has happened like this .. wasted a bloody good weekend here too!!

    Peace [​IMG]

    Oh Murph! You silly sausage!

    First rule of any bite or scratch from a reptile is to soak in dettol! Stings like buggery but never had an infection yet.

    Good luck. I really hope they can clear it up for you!
