    Our nile monitor

    We just generously received a nile monitor. We've always wanted one. He is doing very well. We're in the process of drawing out plans for his new cage and hope to have it built by this weekend. It's weird because he has the bands of an ornate monitor (a variation of the nile monitor), but his tongue is blue, indicating he's a nile monitor. So that's weird. He's been behaving well and ate a little bit. He got out a couple times to go hang out in the window. First time he just went back into his enclosure by himself. Today I saw a long tail under the curtain, he likes to look out the window, so I picked him up and put him back. He was very good, he's getting very comfortable with us. He just clung on with his nails while I put him back in his cage. I've never felt nails so sharp. Anyways, just wanted to share.

    Here he is:



    He's about 3 feet. And gorgeous.

    We dubbed our monitor Roshii!

    He's a fun lil bugger and roams around sometimes. Getting pretty friendly and eats very well.

    Yesterday though we got home and I found the Ts on the floor and the scorps too. I'm amazed no one died. Our zebra was so fat, and I'm amazed she wasn't hurt at all. But then we couldn't find the monitor. After looking around for a while I knew he'd be cold so I got worried and thought of the smallest, tighest space he'd want to hide.....the oven. I was right. Had to pull him out and he was pretty mad.

    He probably would've hurt me a lot more had he been warmer, but that's it for his wandering escapades. Now I've pretty much sealed up his house and he can't free roam anymore. At least not until we get the inverts up on shelves and get a gate in the door he can't climb. We like when he's out because he likes to hang out in the window looking outside. But we'll have to figure something else out.
