Description

Peach throat monitors are found on the island of New Guinea.  These lizards are closely related to the blue tail monitor and the mangrove monitor.  Each of the three species of these monitor lizards utilizes different habitats in New Guinea.  Peach throat monitors prefer dense forests and are excellent climbers.  Wild peach throat monitors will typically eat frogs, lizards, insects, and any small animal they can overpower.  With proper feeding, peach throats grow quickly and adults can reach 3-4 feet in total length.  With proper care peach throat monitors can live 10-15 years in captivity.  Like most monitors, peach throats are nervous captives and may take some time to tame down.  Ideally, the cage should include multiple hiding spots to provide a sense of security.
