The Varanus cumingi, also known as the Cummingi monitor, is a species of lizard found in Australia. These lizards are medium-sized, with adults reaching up to 1.2 meters in length. Their bodies are dark brown or black, with bright yellow or orange spots dotting their backs. Cummingi monitors are shy and reclusive creatures, but they make excellent pets for those willing to put in the time and effort to care for them properly.
Cummings monitors are a popular choice for reptile enthusiasts because of their docile nature and ability to be easily trained. When caring for a Cummings monitor, providing a large enclosure with plenty of hiding places and climbing opportunities is essential. These lizards are also escape artists, so the enclosure must be securely closed.
To create a proper habitat for your Cummings monitor, you will need an enclosure at least 8 feet long and 4 feet wide. The enclosure should have plenty of hiding places and climbing opportunities for the lizard. The enclosure must also be securely closed, as these lizards are known to be escape artists.
Artificial plants can be used to create a more naturalistic setting. A proper diet for a Cummings monitor includes live insects, vegetables, and fruits. Live insects should make up the majority of the lizard's diet and can be fed to them daily. Vegetables and fruits can be given to the lizard a few times a week and should be chopped into small pieces. A calcium supplement should also be given to the lizard regularly.
