    Well, based on several pics i posted up on varanus.nl (which i think you saw?), crocdoc feels it may well be a male. His opinion's good enough for me.
     
  6. Yeah, caught that thread , thanks Nick. I agree, crocdoc's word's just about gospel where monitors are concerned!

    Goodluck with him in the future; I'd be keen on any hatchie updates when they arrive.

    Cheers,

    I.V.

    i doubt there are any type of reptile better than monitors.
    I've got a few species of python, slink & gecko i want.
    Dragons don't really do it for me.
    But monitors..... My must have list is full of them.

    And my female ackie. 16months

    yea. Got them thursday night after they spent a long day no plains and waiting in airports.
    Air traffic control screwed everything up across the east coast thursday arvo.
    But they are here and happy.
    Shy at times. Very inquisitive at others
