    hay all my male savanna monitor general is acting very strange to his regular behavior, 1. he does not want to venture out of his enclosure(wich he never wants to be in his enclsure) 2. usauly he is always wide awake during the day but he seems to be sleeping more during the day and less at night, nothing has changed on my part his feeding times are regular lights are out at the same time every night (they are on a timer) tempiture is regular 78 degrees on the cool side and about 95 degrees on the other but it has been this way for about 2 years any ideas ???:confused:
