Thanks Derrick, I never heard of it before,

I will agree on it growing big, maybe too big to handle. Where will you keep it once its grown?

Yikes!! icon_cheers

It has bite me lots of times but its not too big to worry about .I dont think its going to be to big maybe 4 feet tops .Males get bigger 5 half feet the largest is 7 feet .They dont all tame and can give a mean bite .They also spend lots of time in water so keeping water clean is a pain .This is a picture of Nobby the Nile monitor off some forum.Thanks Kata Clive

Sounds like a UN employee sent to keep an eye on the forthcoming Egyptian civil war . . .
