I also want to show my ionedeas monitor. Or also called black throated monitor. When we got him for 300 dollars he was also just a hatchling he was very aggressive but he has gotten a lot better. Although he is my sisters I think he is amazing. He was less than a foot when we got him and had a 50 gallon tank now he doesn't even have a tank and uses my sisters rooms instead. Now he is around 3 1/2 feet long and will grow to about 6 feet long and is less than a year. These pictures are old.
