    How big are black headed monitors as hatchlings? and would a smaller cage for the first 6 months be better or one sutiable for full grown for example 1.2 x 1.2 x 0.6 from the start?

    I never get around to getting my good camera out, so these are just blurry snaps that I got as I was unpacking these little beauties from Peter Krauss last night :D There are two hatchling spencers and two hatchling lace monitors :D The colours are much more interesting in person, but it was night time in poor light, so everything looks washed out.

  17. I've always found it a challenge to get true yellows on Lacies; they always seem to wash out to white?

    Nice examples BTW:)! the spotting (as opposed to barring) on QLD Lacies is very different.

    Yes these guys have a lot of striking yellow (they only just hatched though), and it washed to white :)

    I love the spotty patterns of these guys! I would like to get some bells later on, for some collection contrast, but I love the really dark look with little speckles, that the QLD adults have.

    I have a little dangly charm on a cord, hanging from the top of my iphone case. When I was taking pictures of one of the lacies, it decided it didn't like the look of it, and puffed his neck up and tried to bite it. Will have to remember to tuck it away if I go for more pictures. He locked his eyes on it until I tucked it inside the phone case.
