I got Nexus from a pet store in town that told me he had lost an eye (the entire socket was milky.) This turned out to be wrong, he had an eye infection that eventually caused him to lose most of his sight in that eye. His skin was also very rough and dry (more so than usual monitors.) Turned out he hadn't shed properly in months. I tried to help, but he was very aggressive, very hard to handle and would constantly try to whip me when I tried to do anything even remotely close to him. I eventually gave him to a friend who had more experience with monitors, I just am not aggressive enough to break such a beast. This is not a beginner lizard as far as I am concerned and I will likely never get another one.
