Hey guys, as I was browsing the next I happened upon a story about black throat monitors.
Most adult black throats that I have personally seen in person were between the ages of 2-6 and they ranged from 4-6 feet with weights of 22-47 lbs.
The largest I have seen was a 6' male that was over 4 years old and weighed in at 49 lbs. However, I have been told of a monster black throat that is 15 years old and is 6' tipping the scales at a massive 120 lbs.!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I know this sounds far fetched, but there is actually a photo accompanying the animal. The owner of the animal has even stated (in another forum) that his animal is 15+ years old and is just over 6' long topping at 120+ lbs. "When black throat monitors are kept in perfect conditions and fed properly, they will reach their full potential."
Now I know that black throats are big, but I didn't think they can top above 50 lbs.
