Nile Monitor's can be aggressive, maybe too much for a beginner. They are best to obtain at a young age, and handled often to attempt to "tame" it. Adult's are powerful, and large, growing 4'-6' on average. They grow fast, as most reptiles with a "bottomless pit" way of eating. They can eat pinkie mice and crickets while young, but should be fed adult mice or large rats as adults. A bite from one of these guys will hurt, so always remain alert while handling them and KEEP SMALL PETS/CHILDREN AWAY!
