Spotlight on: Wessel the Black Throat Monitor!

Wessel is our male Black Throat Monitor! You can come meet him all day everyday at our booth at the OC Fair! I'm going to tell you a little bit about Wessel, since we love him so much!

Black Throat Monitors, or Varanus Albigularis are native to southern Africa, more specifically the savannah region. They are a very large monitor, adult males reaching up to 6 feet in length! Thats a big lizard if I do say so myself (unless you've met Brando....) They are carnivorus, and are also very good garbage disposals, they will eat almost anything! They are also very smart and very personable animals.

Wessel is about 4 1/2 years old, and was given to us by a friend of the store. He has been with us a year now and is doing wonderful! He gets all the love and attention he deserves here with us, and we wouldn't have it any other way! If you would like a Black Throat Monitor of your very own, make sure you stop by the shop and talk to one of our lovely staff! They can help you find the perfect addition to your family. Make sure to stop by the fair to meet Wessel first! He will win you over for sure!
