    Serpenttongue, where did you get that hide in the 3rd pic from? Did you just get a big universal rock and cut a hole in it? Are all your rocks from universal? If so would you be able to PM me a rough price on those beauties. Awesome lacies, I'm going to have to get some one day, right after i buy a couple of acres so i have some more room

    Mudimans, That hide was from Universal, and was one of their smaller ones. Yes, I just cut a hole out the side.

    Yes, all my hides are from Universal, but I purchased them when they were located at Mortdale, and were having a 'moving sale'. Everything was much cheaper then. I think that hide was around $40-50, but some of my larger ones were around $300-400. I should also point out that they were ex display rocks or factory seconds.

    Universal is now located at Punchbowl. Usually if you ask for any factory seconds they will go through old ones out the back and sell one or two a bit cheaper. I love Universal. If they offered me a job there I'd take it immediately:D

    Baz, This juvenile Desert Sand Monitor you got from me in early 2005 is not related to any of the 2 adult male Desert Sand Monitor's - Varanus Gouldii Flavirufus that Richard now owns, cause niether of them 2 mated with the female that laid the eggs on the 4th September 2004.
    The male you see here in this photo his the male who mated with one of me 3 females in July 2004, l should know seeing l was the one who breed and kept them all originaly.

    l doubt your information Baz - ssssnakeman you know quitewell that juvenile you posted on this thread was the one you got from me in March 2005, and died 6 months later, all because of what you feed it why you were looking after it.

    Richardsc, can only thank his lucky stars that he now has 2 adult male Desert Sand Monitor's - Varanus Gouldii Flavirufus, that l got one of on permit from the wild in 2002, its so sad that the female he also got from me in September died not long after he took care of them, all because she became egg bound, seeing he was to slow to set-up the outdoor enclosure l also sold to him at the time, so she would feel happy living in what she was use to living in here at my place, with the right temperature and plenty of space to move around in outdoor all year around:D.

    lts a shame he will have to use a female Sand Monitor that is 50% Gouldii and 50% Flavirufus to breed with what was my to pure adult male Flavirufus.

    Yes I know that,,,duh
    I was suggesting to Richard that it COULD be related, Thanks for clearing that up..
    I wasnt arguing with you Les but like usual you jumped the gun and are having a carry on.
    You just need to relax a bit and read the posts properly before answering and making yourself look
    ignorant.
    Cheers

    FPVMatt, do you know where your V.acanthurus originates from? How old is it? Very nice.
    Here's one of my V. acanthurus from the Pilbara region. This boy hatched out in 2005, and has not lost his fiesty spirit, nor his handsome looks! He wouldn't let go of my shirt once he got it, and held on to it for an hour after I put him back in his cage:
