Thanks Steve, yea hes just over 3 foot and his setup will change in a couple of weeks, ive just orderd a 8ft x 4ft x 4ft viv. i will be posting more pics when hes in it, at the mo hes in a 6 x 3 x 3 with a 250w ceramic for background and night heat with a 125w sun glow basking lamp for heat and uv, he has a water container half full = 12 ltrs of water that he loves do dunk in, branches to climb and orchid bark substrate, most things will stay the same for his new viv apart from 2 x 250 ceramics, more branches as he loves to climb deeper substrate and bigger water container

Nice salvator and my fav species of all the nonitors , as he gets larger he wont climb as much , more sort of hang over logs etc
i keep 3 of these a young pair 4ft plus and a mature female just under 6ft
they also seem to get calmer the older they get (speaking of my 3 here)

enjoy him they are in a class of there own

steve
