    Too bad the savannahs don't retain their juvenile coloration into adulthood. My friend recently lost her 4 ft savannah to some sort of bacterial infection. This guy was literally puppy dog tame! Calmest monitor I have ever seen.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Merlin: That is too bad. Savannahs get all sorts of crap if there temps are not high enough. Which from what i have seen is the biggest problem/ mistake. An most savannahs do calm down with regular handling, in fact i have only seen a few aggresive adults.

    Jacky: They both are alittle nippy but can be handled alright. I am just trying to be careful about how I can calm them down without to much stress involved. Here are there enclosures for you:

    those are some beautiful animals... speaking of which...

    im thinking about getting a monitor and was wondering about some relatively cheap species i can find for under 100 dollars at a reptile fair that I can tame from a juvi or a baby... under 7 feet. im going to keep him out on the porch this summer until october, when it starts to get cold in florida.

    the pet store i went to today had both nile and a savana monitors and i got to hold them both, the savanna was mean but the nile hatchling was calm and inquisitive.

    what about ackies? what is it short for and is there a difference between red and yellow phases?

    thanks in advance for answering questions.
