    Yes they are and usually a pretty placid animal that doesn't get too agitated and will tolerate handling.

    Interesting. How many of the big monitors will tolerate handling?

    Well I guess any of them would if enough time was put into them but Mangroves and Mertens are a more placid temperament to begin with.
