    I had a heart attack when i got home, the photo shows how I found my ackie. I touched him and he jumped back over. Is it common for them to sleep on there backs? He was is his stack.

    The closest to Sonny i have seen (pic only, dont know gender) is the young lace monitor on page 77, which will be alot older now. Would love to see an update pic of him/her.

    Random question, I thought of after seeing this pic.
    Do monitors suffer like Iguanas do when put on their back for periods of time?

    I found one of my Gillens sleeping on his back too! I think he was initially sleeping leaning against the rock background, but was in too deep asleep and lost his grip?

    Aside from Alex, I've had a handful of babies that have looked like Sonny. Tiger is the one that's so far ended up being most similar to Alex.

    Love the photos Crocdoc, it's amazing to see the changes in features, especially on such a spectacular specimen as Alex
