havent read any further than this so if u dont have the gator anymore sorry. Cool you have a gator. living in Louisiana ive had a few under 3 foot :). putting them outside in a mesh cage at that age is a bad idea unless you cover the top. they will and can climb up fence or mesh in the corners and get out :). ask me how i know lol. i miss that little gator.
Dont be lazy and read the whole thing ;)
I still have him, and hopeflly for much longer. Hes a joy to have around and is amusing come feeding time. Also, at night hes quite interestng to just sit and watch
I figured i would have had to put somthing on top, these guys are tricky little buggers :)
also, they can dig to, so any mesh i will put up would be minimum 2 feet below the ground.
I wish i could keep him for his whole life. hes a pretty cool little guy :)
and varanus your old guys looks pretty good. I like that last picture
