    Recently, I have fallen in love with BTS. I have been debating whether to get a savanna monitor or a BTS. I think a BTS will be a better choice. I just have one question: How big does a Northern get, some sources say 12-18 some say 22+inches. I checked on BTS.net but there was no info on how big a northern gets. Another question, will a 75 gallon be adequate for the skinks whole life.

    Hi, go for the bluey! they are great animals, ranging in size from 14-26 inches, they live 15-25 yrs or more with the proper care.
    We took in our Bluey because she was a vicious animal, with all her huffing and puffing scared her previous owner to death LOL... 2 weeks after leaving her to herself to get acclimated to her new surroundings she is a perfect lady LOL she even goes out to shows with us and loves the attention, and kids are amazed by her tiny legs, snake like body and amazing blue tongue. she is currently 18" long and in a 3ftx 2 ft enclosure.

    Blueys are fun and MUCH easier to manage than a savanna.
    Unless you are partial to surrendering half of your bedroom to the enclosure!
