Nice. Thank you very much. I have a few questions.They are incredibly aggressive, to the point of being homicidal. I can't compare the aggression to any other species since complete decapitation can and has happened. It can depend on the individual, but they should be housed separately and introduced only for closely monitored courtship. They are definitely highly crepuscular and have a very alert and perky personality. They quickly become very accustomed to and interested in human presence. I love their individual personalities as they are quite unique. I am publishing an article in this years TTPG BATAGUR which includes much more detail on the species. Feel free to ask me any questions either here or through a PM.
I've read conflicting advice about humidity and moisture of substrate. What makes sense to me is high humidity, damp substrate, and a layer of mulch so that they aren't constantly wet. Do you agree with that?
Second, do you suggest basking areas? It seems some do and some don't.
Lastly, along the same lines, where do you suggest placement of outdoor pens? (Full sun, dappled sun, morning sun, etc)
