His name is Nozdormu but we all call him Stumpy as he's missing the tip of his tail.

Very cool!

Are they any clever? like are they able to interact with you in any way, react to things you do or do they just lie there totally blank?

Wow, loads of replies.

They have a range of personalities, from sociable and friendly to really, really grumpy. Mine is more of the latter. He head bobs and arm waves a lot and had a tantrum at my other half this evening.

They're fun to interact with and trainable, to an extent. Definitely not blank and boring!

This boy is getting a 4 foot viv as soon as we move and have space. Super excited.

I don't interact with you THAT much, though they will react to things around them. After a little while they will let you handle them and do seem to enjoy having their chin and head scratched, they may also take food from your hand, though you'd have to make sure they don't accidentally go for your finger thinking it's a nice juicy worm.

Some say they recognise their owners, I imagine they might recognise your smell....though I'm not sure it's a real bond or anything, the larger monitor lizards are the most intelligent, they do seem to recognise their owner, though again more by taste and smell then your actual face.

Oats over newspaper. I wanted something to help insulate but without the risk of impaction.

He's refusing to eat his greens, grrr!

if he refuses for weeks try not feeding him any livefood at all until he eats his veg, some are fussy but when it's greens or nothing they soon learn!

You tried butternut squash, most seem to love that. also this time for year any yellow dandelions, they usually go mad for them as their natural diet in the wild includes a lot of flowers from a particular plant, which are yellow, some folks grow dandelions for them, I think the flower and the leaves are fine.

He's been tried on rocket, dandelion leaves, butternut squash, carrots and green beans. Obviously carrots and rocket wouldn't be offered very often as I know they're easy to have too much of.

I put some mealworms in his bowl with the veg in the hopes this would tempt him to take a mouthful but he just picked a couple of mealworms out and left the rest and the veg. Grr!

well you are an RFUK member, so if it's still going on I'm sure you'll get advice haha.

Oh and nice try with the mealies! Maybe...feed him with thongs, put a mealie and a piece of butternut squash together?
