Savannah Monitors need Heat and Humidity Print E-mail

ImageTo promote the idea that savannah monitor lizards are easy to care for, the pet trade favours books that claim that savannah monitor lizards are from dry places and can be kept in a simple box enclosure with a water bowl. But in fact savannah monitor lizards require much higher levels of humidity that are best provided by a deep substrate that will hold moisture and allow the animals to dig.

At last! A book to answer all your questions about savannah monitor lizards!

by Daniel Bennett and Ravi Thakoordyal

This is the first book written by people who have studied savannah monitors in the wild and bred them in captivity. As a result our book is very different from its competitors. The husbandry information is excellent and the insights into the animals' ecology and natural history are unique. In fact we believe that this will rapidly make all other books about savannah monitors obsolete!

We think it is the best guide to keeping monitor lizards in captivity ever published!


Published January 2003. ISBN 0-95266329-5. 84 pages, 64 illustrations, 13 in colour. 8.5 x 5.5. inches, softbound. Printed on high quality gloss paper.
