    What Substrate Should I Use for a Baby Savannah Monitor?

    What is the best substrate to use for a baby savannah monitor? Is 8 inches deep enough for a baby?

    Not ideally. Mine went past 8" before he was 2 months old. Can you put up some pictures of the enclosure and some details about humidity and temps for us?

    Eco earth will not hold a burrow. I use regular pure topsoil mixed with sand, about 70/30

    What is he housed in now?

    Kudos on that.

    Eco-earth will also be more expensive than soil for the amount you will be needing.

    Awesome. Bravo!! Soil will be cheaper for sure. You just go outside and get some buckets.
    Please do ample amount of research and have a backup account for emergency costs before purchasing any pet.

    Should I use a 50/50 mix of sand and soil or 70/30?
