    Ackies are much bigger than brev's and tristis

    This is where my little goulds live at the moment.
    They will get an 8x4x2 when they are a bit bigger.
    Then an 8m x 2m when they grow up and in outside.

    not to be disrespectfull, but do you take me for an Idiot?
    seriously......

    the slate is not just sitting on the sand... it's all suspended on other bits (acting like legs) or on rat houses sunk into the sand
    everything is touching the bottom of the enclosure, or is ontop of something that is touching the bottom...
    nothing can collapse. i could stand my 98kg on that and not have it collapse

    TWENTY B, l'm not taking you for an idiot at all, it just did not look like it was supported at all, sorry if l miss took for what l saw in your photos, l hope you do well in rearing your 4 juvenile Sand Monitor's, and one day you get to breed from them good luck mate.

    Their future depends on you as if your their step dad, please take good care of them and look after them all well.:)

    Have you got any close-up side shots are your monitor's head? From the looks of that first photo, it may be 'her' enclosure rather than 'his'.

    this is most of it. I don't have a wide enough angle lens to get in the bottom quarter or third not visible.
