You haven't finally completed that display enclosure in your lounge room, have you?!
How big is the enclosure they are kept in?
LOL, yes I have and he loves it. He will be moved when I build my second reptile room though.
When do you want this bloody great incubator ?
I might be able to get it tomorrow. Do you think it will fit in the Hiace?
Mate they are so good i am putting one on my christmas list now. How big of an area do you need for them when they are adults?
as much as u can give them,lol,how much can u offer them,they need water as well,boa stop showing that big fella,im trying to cure my monitor addiction here,sheesh,well i give up,its uncurable,as i dont want to be cured,awsome animals guys,glad to see there numbers slowly growing in captivity,and if they r like mertons definatly must be nice to keep,i assumed they were shyer than mertons,either way there awsome,thanks for sharing the pics guys
god damn thats a nice one, last night i put them in the 4foot turtle tank, awesome to watch them float around with eyes/ nose just out like a croc. love watching them swim.
look forward to them getting some more size
very very nice are the hard to look after.and whats needed to keep them.
Post more Photos Boa! :shock:
Mangroves only get as big as the male your holding.
You got to love them they are awsome to watch, but mine were fairly timid.
They never bite & are easy to keep.
Congrates RichardSC on yours.
All the best,
how much did each cost??
Because of the cold weather he isn't as active as he would be so I don't have too many more photo's but will get some more.
Jason, thanks for that it is good to know he is full grown as he is easily manageable at that size. He's pretty mellow really and although he doesn't really look forward to being touched or handled he doesn't stress about it.
what conditions do you need to keep them in and what size cage do they need.
i have seen black and white and yellow and black are they the only 2 you can get.
I think the answer to the cage size question is give it as big a cage as you can with a minimum of say 2 metres by 1.5 by 2 metres high.
Mine is very dark brown and green in colour.
Its a top looking animal.
There is some advertised on herptrader from a blue animal.
Anyone have photos of Blue adults.
