I think i have always been taken with Mangrove monitors since I first read about them in Cogger many years ago. It seems that they are now becoming more tantalizingly available in captivity - and you can even keep them in Victoria! These pictures do not quite do them justice. They can be stunningly beautiful with brilliant yellow spots on an indigo background. The are aquatic as their common name suggests but as far as I can tell not as aquatic as the Mertens. I have been looking around at their husbandry requirements. There are a few sites out there: http://mampam.50megs.com/monitors/indicus.html http://www.herpkingdom.com/CS/mangrovemonitor.html Does anybody on APS have any or know anything about them??
