Ridge Tail Monitor or "Ackie" make fantastic beginner monitors! Their small and compact size make them very manageable and yet they still offer many of the same traits as their bigger cousins! Although small in size these animals are very active and will still need an enclosure that can offer them plenty of freedom to move! Enclosure size for 1-2 adults should be 1200 x 600 x 600 with a hot spot of 50+ degrees Celsius while keeping in mind that they still need to thermoregulate and a cool end of approximately 25 degrees is still required! Hatchlings can be kept in a large tub or small enclosure that measures roughly 600mm cubed! Please ensure you have your enclosure and heating setup and calibrated before making your purchase!

Our shipping days are Monday- Wednesday. Reptile orders placed before 10am usually get shipped the same day. Reptile orders placed after 10am, get shipped the following day.

We pack your reptiles in the safest, most efficient way possible. Depending on weather conditions, we may include an ice pack or heat pack at no extra charge for the safety of the animals. If weather conditions are too severe to ship, we will notify you and arrange a future shipping date. This is all done for the safety of the animal!
