The kordensis green tree monitor for sale is mainly yellow-green, although in captivity specimens frequently lose their yellow pigment and become turquoise in color. It has a black netted pattern which is visible on its back. It reaches a total length of up to 90 cm
The kordensis green tree monitor for sale diet consists of large tree-dwelling arthropods, such as katydids, grasshoppers, stick insects, cockroaches, beetles, centipedes, spiders and crabs, as well as birds and small mammals (such as the Moncton’s mosaic-tailed rat). Before swallowing stick insects, the lizards tear off the legs. Captive kordensis green tree monitor for sale tear off the limbs of rodents prior to eating them; as a result, they are capable of swallowing mammals of a considerable size: A 135-g lizard was documented as eating a 40-g rodent, almost one-third its size. Paleontologist and Temple University professor Michael Balsai has observed V. prasinus eating fruit (bananas) in captivity as has herpetologist and author Robert G. Sprackland.
Clutches consist of up to five eggs, each weighing 10.5–11.5 g (0.37–0.41 oz) and measuring about 2 by 4.5 cm (0.79 by 1.77 in). As many as three clutches are laid throughout the year; clutches have been laid by captives in January, March, April, November, and December. The female kordensis green tree monitor for sale lays her eggs in arboreal termite nests. The eggs hatch between 160 and 190 days later, typically from June to November, after which the young eat the termites and the termite’s eggs within minutes of hatching. Sexual maturity is reached in about one year.
There are many different acceptable ways to house kordensis green tree monitor for sale. Successful keeping and breeding have occurred in many different setups. Custom enclosures specifically designed and built for tree monitors are a necessity. Some of the most important enclosure elements include the total amount of usable surface area for climbing, the ability to retain high humidity levels and to hold a temperature gradient.
Kordensis green tree monitor for sale are highly active lizards and spend a considerable amount of time in trees. When designing an enclosure, it is important to place the emphasis of its design on height. These monitors use every square inch of space provided to them; space management is extremely important. The easiest way of maximizing usable surface area is to render the walls climbable by affixing a climbable material, such as cork tiles, cork flats, garden lattice or vinyl hardware cloth. By doing so, the total amount of usable surface area within the enclosure can be increased at least threefold. Provided that interior space is maximized, a pair of kordensis green tree monitor for sale can live successfully in an enclosure measuring 4 feet wide by 6 feet tall by 2 feet deep, although larger is usually better. It is also a good idea to keep a separate enclosure on hand in the event that animals need to be separated.
Humidity retention is another extremely important element. When dealing with tropical species that dehydrate easily, ventilation can become a serious problem. The use of screening or large vents only encourages the loss of humidity from within the enclosure. Sufficient air exchange occurs within the enclosure through daily maintenance and feedings. There is no need for air vents within the enclosure. It is important to keep relative humidity levels in excess of 70 percent, in order to prevent dehydration.
