    More nutritional than nuggets and a fair bit dearer too.

    U can throw one of them cheese burgers on the ground and come back a mth later and it won't of changed at all, still the exact same shape and the meat won't even smell off. One of the luxuries of engineered food :)

    Turok basking after a feed. Seems a lot more chill around me now. Doesn't bolt at all when I walk past or move my hand close to glass. I've even laid my hand right in front of him inside enclosure and he's scented but not freaked out.

    How is he for size? He's around 4 months old now. I would guess 45cm total length. Fed pretty much every day. Whether it's chunks of cut up chicken necks, weaner mouse (will try Adult mouse next time), or a couple of handfuls of dusted woodies on varying days. Doesn't touch Crickets.

    Looks healthy to me. Only thing I'd suggest is, as he gets to 6 months or so, start to cut back to every second day, otherwise he could get overweight. I'd also be careful of putting your hand in front of him as he grows too. Our guy has gone from shy and timid, to coming right up to the glass when I come into the room. And charges the food bowl.

    Every second day is how we feed our monitors. I was suggesting to Tobe404 that he should cut back from every day, to avoid obesity.
    Having said that, our panoptes looks longingly at me on the off days, lol.

    This guy is one of my favorites. I'm not sure y, he's angry, won't let me anywhere near him, gave me a bacterial infection when he bit me. However his patterning and coloration is really nice, the lighting in his enclosure doesn't do him any justice.
    If only I could find him a young lady.[​IMG][​IMG]


    Found a few more in the ackie enclosure [​IMG]
