Roachman26 Posted December 26, 2009 Share Posted December 26, 2009 Does anyone know if its critical that monitors get a lot of UV? I've always done it, but is it necessary? I know beardies, iggies and any chelonians must have it, as much as possible, but I've heard conflicting things about it for monitors. They say big boas and pythons don't need much, if any, because they get D3 from eating whole prey animals. Is it the same for Varanids? I'm aware of the psychological benefits, what I'm asking about is MBD. I'm building a sunning cage for my little ones and I'm always worried about losing one or having some sort of outdoor mishap. Once they get a little bigger they'll live outdoors anyway, but while they're little I keep them inside and give sunshine on warm days.
