I recently built a temporary 40 gallon enclosure for my baby nile monitor Milo! It is semi aquatic and the walls are made using expanding foam, silicone and eco earth shredded coco fiber. His basking area is around 115 and 120 at the hottest spot. His substrate is a mixture of coco fiber, organic topsoil and playsand for burrowing. The aquatic side is aquarium safe sand with fake plants and decorations and the water stays at a constant 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity bounces between 50 and 60% he seems to be absolutely thriving feeding on appropriately sized pinkie mice, Crickets, Dubias, raw ground turkey, cooked eggs, chicken hearts and gizzards and occasionally rosey red fish that swim in his pond. I supplement with repti cal with D3 5 times a week for everything besides fish and rodents. He’s shed twice in the past 4 weeks that I’ve had him. Keep in mind I’m well aware of what Nile monitors grow into as I’m keeping him in this 40 gallon for only about 6 months as I’m hand building an outdoor greenhouse for him to live in for good. Anyway that’s milos enclosure and everything I’ve done so far to keep him healthy and happy, I have experience with several other types of monitor lizards like savanahs but this is by far the biggest monitor lizard I’ve taken on. Even though he’s a baby he’s an absolute sweetheart, very social and never hisses or bites and for lack of better term actually seems to enjoy attention. If there’s any issues or problems that anyone sees or thinks of I’d love for some feedback and I’ll get on top of it right away. Thank you! [post_title] => Nile monitor enclosure!

Every month, we're giving away a year supply of free feeder insects. 

And the rules are simple:

  1. Post a picture of your amazing pet, their kooky personalities, their adventurous habitats or anything else pet related (important: the month that your picture is posted, is the monthly contest that you are eligible to win).  But how do I do this?  Click the Start a Topic button in the upper right hand corner.  Upload your picture, and give it the title Cricket Contest.  
  2. Collect the most Critter Gold for the month (read below to find out more information on Critter Gold)
  3. And Boom!  You just won a year supply of FREE crickets

What is Critter Gold and how do I collect it?

Critter Gold is a reward system (see here).  Every community member has the opportunity to reward interesting posts with Critter Gold.  If you want to win a year supply of free crickets, post an interesting picture of your pet or habitat so that community members will reward your post with gold. And anytime you see amazing animals, interesting habitats, or anything else that strikes your fancy, be sure to reward that post with Critter Gold as well.

Announcing the Winners!

  • The winner will be announced within 48 hours by the end of each month.
  • The winner will be awarded a coupon code for 500 free crickets.  This coupon code will be honored for 12 purchases.  Winners may also use these coupons to purchase other feeders like superworms, dubia roaches, and black soldier fly larva.
  • Winners may continue posting pictures, topics, and questions.  But they are not eligible to win until 12 months since they won.
  • And we will keep a running list of the winning posts listed here.
