    Hey guys!

    I have a spare 3ft (3x2x2) setup I was considering getting a single ackie.

    Will I be able to get away with 3ft or is that simply too small?

    i'd go for a 4ft enclosure at the minimum, with 3ft of height for burrowing space. You could have a smaller terrestrial monitor in that though, such as a storrs monitor, stripe tailed monitor, etc.

    Not a picture but... Turok actually let me measure him today. Yes I mean I literally got a tape measure and put one end on the tip of his nose and the other end at the tip of his tail and he didn't crack a poo about it. Was pretty surprised.

    He measured in at 1.1m. Just over 2 years old. So I'm going with 'He'. Especially since he has a bit of his tail missing (got him like that from breeder). Just the white part at the very end. How long usually is that?

    Oh on a side note. A couple of his toe nails have broken off somehow. Pretty sure this only happened since he was in his tank outside and started digging though. Will they eventually grow back or it depends?

    Part of the nail(s) are still there so they're not completely ripped out.

    I don't think it's a humidity/shedding issue as he has a bath tub to swim in and i spray him regularly if it's hot outside. Plus when it rains naturally the humidity goes up.

    Well, got my second bite today. Not sure what triggered it. Food response I would guess. Even though I gave him a big Rat just yesterday (and I thought he was getting used to the idea that bowl means food... That seems to be out the window now).

    Didn't do too much damage. Put a heap of dettol on it and a bandaid pad over it. Not hurting or anything so should be all good.

    I am disappointed though as I thought I was making good progress with Turok.

    Where should I go from here?
