New Red Ackie monitor

Post  Bryan Arens on Wed Apr 13, 2011 6:43 am

Well, it's official. I have ordered my new sub adult male Red Ackie monitor and should have him on Friday of this week. I will post some pics once I get him and some pics of his enclosure. I decided to get a subadult since the babies are hard to handle since they are very small and since I have the adult cage setup already. He is still only about 8-10 months old though and is good sized already.

I am very very excited. I am worse than a little kid who was just given a wad of cash and told by my parents that I can go to the toy store and buy whatever I want, however I am stuck at the door waiting for the store to open. I think my wife is excited too, she said she thinks the ackies are really neat since they are small and loaded with tons of personality. Once he gets settled, I will take some pics and post later today.

Here are some pics of my new sub adult male Red Ackie Monitor and his decorated enclosure. I used pavers in a stacked pattern for the basking spot too resemble a retes stack of sorts. The substrate is eco earth mixed with play sand. And he has a hide log on the cool end with a water dish and some plants to explore and a few branches to climb on since they are semi arboreal.

The enclosure-

Thank you everyone. Zak, the reds like mine tend to get 2-2.5 feet in length and on a rare occasion get a little bigger. The yellows typically are 1.5-2 feet. The reds are the more desirable of the two because of the brighter colors, therefore are more expensive than the yellows. Average price range for a yellow baby is $150-$200 and $175-$250 for a sub adult or adult. The red babies average $250-$300 and the sub adults and adults usually go for $300-$375. The bolder the colors, especially in the reds is what drives the cost up. If you watch the internet, you can sometimes get adults that are missing a few toes for really cheap. That is unfortunately one of the drawbacks of ackies, even though they get to be a good size, they have very delicate little toes and tend to lose them from retained sheds, making humidity and soaking very important during a shed. Otherwise the humidity can remain lower.
