    i have a black roughneck monitor and a savannah monitor and the problem that i am having is that since i hve raised the substrate and all that they have been going to the door and spending most of the time there its a lot cooler near the door and i figured it could be that but also i thought the way that i set t up and exactly where they are it seems it is a good hiding spot as well so i was wondering if this is something ro worry about or not? the back roughneck comes out and then he goes around the cage and to be honest so does the savannah but the majority of the time they end up there so i was wondering if this is something i need to worry about?

    Since you've messed with the habitat. I would say likely they like the tight spot for hiding out.
    It's stinking hard to pull a monitor out of a space they are wedged into.
    Also, in the future, please us a little more punctuation. It's much easier to read.

    Yep, what Mike said. You gave them a nice and easy tight space to hide in, so they go right for that. They may get tired of it eventually as they get used to the new caging, or you might be able to cut a piece of wood to fill the gap.

    I'm not sure where to look or how to navigate on this web page but does anyone know if I can feed my Savannah monitor a Kansas ground skink. I know it is proper size compared to my Savannah. I don't want biased opinions, just the realistic answer that can tell me if it is safe for him or not.
