Housing a Yellow Monitor
yellow quince monitor for sale will need a fairly large enclosure. As a minimum for an adult I would recommend an enclosure with dimensions 6 feet long x 3 feet high x 2.5 feet deep. This is only a suggestion. Obviously the bigger the cage the better off the monitor will be. This can easily be constructed out of melamine and glass that you could purchase from any large hardware store. Building your own enclosure gives you a lot more control over the size and shape of your cage and you will find that you can build a large cage for a relatively low price. Give it a try!
As a substrate there are many options available to the keeper. Some good choices include aspen, mulch, sand, soil, newspaper and many others. For yellow quince monitor for sale I would recommend either cypress mulch, soil, or a mixture of the two. Cypress mulch is very good because of its ability to hold moisture. Also, yellow quince monitor for sale will bury itself in the substrate if allowed for a major part of the day. I provide a five inch layer of substrate and this seems to give them enough depth to hide in. Deeper would probably be better.
Hiding places are important for this species just as in any other monitor species. Hide boxes should be dark places that allow the monitor to feel secure. There are many commercially available hide boxes but they are usually not suited for large monitors so building your own is an option you should explore. Another option that works well is going out and looking for a hollow logs or other appropriate sized and shaped articles you can find in nature.
Humidity is another important factor that must be considered. yellow quince monitor for sale, being from Indonesia will require a higher relative humidity than monitors from say, Africa. This can be achieved in a number of ways. The most costly would probably be to install a misting system to spray your enclosure at set intervals. The more frugal way of achieving the same thing would be to use a spray bottle of sorts and mist the tank everyday or as needed. Remember, you don’t want to have the monitor in a constantly wet environment. Give it the chance to choose its conditions. This can be done by providing a few hide spots- some damp and some dry.
If you can provide climbing areas in your tank, do so. yellow quince monitor for sale will climb if given the chance but then so would most monitors. Also, if you can provide areas of dense vegetation by placing plastic plants in the enclosure you may find this helps them feel more secure and not so exposed.
Feeding Your Yelllow Monitor
Feeding yellow quince monitor for sale should not be a difficult task. Prey items that have been excepted include eggs, mice, small rats, crickets, mealworms, fish and other seafood. They are usually very eager feeders and are not as shy as some other members of the Mangrove complex. Fresh water should be made available at all times. They may also defecate in their water bowl making daily cleanings a must.
Size and Temper of a Yellow Monitor
yellow quince monitor for sale is a medium sized monitor that seems to average around 4 feet in TL. This number is rough and may change as we learn more about this monitor. They have been reported to hit adult size anywhere from 3.5 to 5ft but in my limited experience four feet seems to be average. At this point hatchling size data is not available but it seems safe to assume they would be comparable to Mangrove monitor.
yellow quince monitor for sale are hesitant to bite as a first defence but would rather flee an aggresor. I was bitten once during feeding but it was not in response to a perceived threat but rather my own carelessness. Speaking with other owners, it is hard to come to a consensus over their temperament. Definitely non-aggressive but some say skittish while others say very tame. It is this author’s experience that they become tame with handling and are comparable to a Dumeril’s monitor in this sense.
When first handled they will be nervous and scratch or defecate on the handler but mine lost this reaction with persistent gentle handling. Cutting the nails helps immensely during this time. I have never seen one of these tail whip as a defense nor have I seen the huffing and puffing common to most monitors. They are also tolerant to each other when kept in groups and I have never seen aggression in this type of situation, even at feeding time.
