Nile Monitor Review

By

Australia

Posted Oct 29, 2014

The Nile Monitor is not a pet for beginners. This lizard is aggressive, will bite and slash at you when it is handled. It requires a extremely large enclosure such as a whole room when they reach adult size.
My arms are always cut up from handling my Monitor and i would not advise you to keep another lizard with it. You will end up at the vet more times than not.
Although these lizards sound dangerous i love them. Their raw strength and power they possess is amazing along with their beautiful patterns and colours.

Nile Monitors should only be kept by professionals and do not make good pets.
