5 Tips For Keeping The Savannah Monitor


Savannah monitor (Varanus exanthematicus) lizards are an ideal captive for experienced reptile keepers. They grow to about 3 feet in length and need a very large enclosure so they can move about. They are an interesting species with very demanding care requirements and are captive-bred in the United States.
