  • New home for my Savannahs!!

    No big news!! I just bought a 125 gallon aquarium! 6'L ,2'W, 2'H For my Babys!! When they get hugafide. It use to house to 9 foot Columbians!! They guy sold it tome with every thing lights, stand, screen top, and other accessories. For only $200!!
    Sorry I just had to share this steal I made with somebody. My babys will be so happy. They can run the cricket dash all over that beast...its almost like a football field compared to them. Will post a pic when I get the tank.

      Diablo, monitors (which savannahs are) of any kind don't really make good first lizard pets. Leopard geckos or African fat-tail geckos make good pets. Crested geckos are pretty good also, but they need more humidity the two aforementioned species. Bearded dragons are a good choice also, their care is a bit more involved, but they're very rewarding lizards to keep.

        Bry is very correct!  Savs are at a bare minimum "extremely cool!", but they also require a good deal of care.  It's nothing too outrageous, but it's nothing that can be done in a matter of 5-10 minutes a day (or even every other day) like you can do with a Leopard Gecko, or many other geckos.  The size thing is another issue to consider, these monitors will grow very large, anywhere between 4-6 feet.  Unlike geckos, crickets will only satisfy this beast for about the first 2-3 months of it's life, then it's on to larger prey, and eventually the larger rats and small rabbits.  

        So, if you're looking for a lizard that is easy to take care of with minimal maintenance/upkeep, I would discourage the Sav and push more for a gecko or other similar lizard.  But if you want to take it on, I recommend you check into all the care sheets, learn as much as possible, and visit someone that has one if that option is available to you!  Good luck in whatever you do.

          I agree with the guys. Savannahs are great pets but, (theres always that but) like the guys said these lizards get big..real big. For an adult Savvanah you need a cage at least 6'L, 2'w, 2to3'H. I myself decided to take on a pair. ;D ;D ;D. If you have allot of other pets. I would reccomend a Gecko of some sort. Bearded Dragons are a good choice too. If you want something that will get a little bigger. I prefer beardeds myself. Just because there little stocky lizards. They look like Reptilian Bulldogs the way they stand and walk. Food can get a bit expensive for a Savannah to. An Adult will eat two big rats a week. There little piggys. They'll eat more then that but, you dont want to over feed. Savannahs have a tendency to get fat in captivity . Due to overfeeding. Good Luck ...If you do decide to get a savannah do the reaserch. They grow like weeds too.
          They can grow up to 3'-4' in about 14-15months.

            Adding to my last statement. If you do decide to go with a Savannah . Start with a big cage youll save yourself allot of money. Theyll out grow a 20-50 gallon tank in about 5-6 months.
