Savannah Monitor For Sale

Varanus exanthematicus  

Probably the most popular monitor lizard species to ever enter the hobby, this is the imminently tamable, ruggedly beautiful, and physically impressive Savannah Monitor.  Generally considered to be the best of the monitors for beginners and those looking for a "pet" rather than an agressive display animal.  Relatively easy to tame, and impressive in size and stature, the Savannah has made a permanent place for itself in the herpetological hobby, endearing itself to literally thousands of keepers.  Most are quite gentle straight from our facility, and with a little more regular handling, they should become quite docile, but this doesn't mean that you should ever take forget what they CAN do.  It is also important that novice keepers consider the adult size of these animals, as they can grow to nearly the length of a full grown man, and their appetite can be prodigious to say the least.  Though these animals are often thought of as a beginner's choice, be certain that you do sufficient research, such that you may make that determination intelligently for yourself.   REMEMBER, it's not the cost of the animal that's expensive (in most cases), but the cost of properly SETTING UP the animal so that it may thrive.  This is one of those cases.  Several sizes generally available, but don't hesitate to email for availability!

Bottom Line?

Impressive?  No doubt.  Adorable?  Perhaps.  For beginners?  Meh....  The Savannah is certainly one of the most manageable of the large varanids, and also one of the most affordable, but don't make the mistake of thinking that they're just a cheap walk in the park.  This is an animal that commands respect, and the best place to start is by doing sufficient research to insure that you're ready to take one on.

  1. Better than I could have imagined 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Dec 2016

    Ordered my subadult savannah monitor last week and super satisfied to see my new guy was healthy, happy (a little groggy from the trip to AR, but still happy), and active from the get go. It has been a pleasure handling and bonding with him since I opened the box he was overnight shipped (with a still toasty heat pack I should add) in. Feeding him is like watching something you could only see on YouTube or Animal Planet, which has been a treat by itself.

  5. Healthy, happy and handsome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2015

    I placed an order for a sub-adult savannah lizard as a present for my fiance. I must admit since I was a first timer, I was a bit nervous to have him shipped because I was concerned for his health. As soon as he arrive, and I unwrapped our new buddy I was so ecstatic to see such a well taken care of, healthy, but most of all happy guy. Honestly one of the best looking monitor lizards I've seen to this day. First choice reptiles has my business for life.
    They are a company who truely cares, and it shows in their reptiles.
