    My Savannah monitor just finished another shed about 9 or 10 days ago, and returned to his beautiful dark grey self. I went to change his water and give him a snack today, and I noticed he's back to the pale brown color he get's when he's shedding and I dont know why? He's still very alert,energetic,and his appetite is HUGE as always. He appears healthy, but his colors have changed. I can't finda ny information about this online....has anybody ever encountered this before?

    I got him some wax worms today and it seemed to bring his color back...it was his first time eating wax worms...he seemed to really enjoy them...

    I don't know about monitors specifically, but I do know that some reptiles do not have a regular pattern of shedding. Sometimes they can shed every few months, then shed every few weeks, and then shed every other week or something. I wouldn't worry about it unles it happened for an extended period.
