    Well, if you have dial-up, you are in for a Loooooong wait!

    I got my first ever monitor, and he's already blown me away with his beauty! He's just amazing. (Also smaller than I'd expected!)

    Well, onto the ONSLAUGHT of pics!

    (Remember dial-uppers, I WARNED you!)

    Here he is! Look at how small he is!

    From what I understand, he'll only get to around 16-18"

    I still can't get over how small he is! I expected something much larger! haha

    Absolutely beautiful Brendt! And so tiny! Are they difficult to keep? What type of temperment do you expect out of him?

    Is he not skittish at all? Timors are knows to be very skitish and the one I own is.

    Thanks everyone!

    Well, he's now living more up to his reputation since he's been into his new home.

    Blue Spot Timors are not as good for handling. They hide often and are more shy than other monitors. This one wasn't too bad the day I got him, yet still didn't want to sit still for any amount of time! (Spent nearly every moment trying to escape from me)

    I was lucky to get a few shots of him, for now he is nearly always hiding. There are at least two spots where I can see that he's burrowed down into the substrate. In the afternoons, I'll see just his head popping out, looking for food. After feeding him, and sometimes, as I first open the enclosure, he spooks and ducks back down.

    I am trying to feed by hand (tongs, literally) in order to get him more used to me. It's been suggested to me that I handle him as little as possible, in order to allow him to feel more secure in his enclosure. I've heard of people who never see theirs because they hide anytime anyone is in the room. Others, who try not to handle theirs as often, have better luck actually seeing the little buggers doin' their thing in the setups.

    I guess I could've also provided a 'less desireable' home for him (in his standards) with fewer places to hide in order to be able to see him, but to me that's cruel.

    Any other questions, feel free to ask!

    I too cant' wait to see what size he ends up as as an adult!
