All absolutely stunning monitors and fantastic enclosures to boot. Where did you get the florescent bulb cabling?

Thanks Scott. The cable is what comes with the Arcadia starter. I just paint it with some of the background paint to try and make it blend in.

Genius idea, looks perfect in the vivs too. I need a big shed like yours, then I wouldnt need to decide what species to got for- could just have them all!

Very nice !

Has anyone got any Spiny Neck Monitor (Varanus spinulosus) here in the UK?

They used to be part of the indicus complex and are stunning.

Jon, V. spinulosus is only available in the US. There is a import ban on the Solomons here in the EU. There was one shipment allowed in the Czech Republic earlier this year but it did not contain any spinulosus only a few indicus.

So as soon as the ban is lifted imports are more likely! Same goes for the monkey tailed skinks...
