A monitor's hideout is the place where the monitor retreats when it needs to be alone. Monitor hideouts are usually in a boxy shape that is different on each side. The perch is probably the best hideout. Typically, a monitor retreats to a small box or perch that is in a different color than the rest of the enclosure.
Some monitors are finicky eaters. The key is to give them what they like. If they don't eat much or at all, they will be sick. If they do eat a lot, they will probably be very active. If you feed them a good selection of food, they will be healthy. If you feed them too much, they will be sick. If you feed them too little, they will be sick. As always, feed your monitor a balanced diet.
As always, your monitor's diet will be best if you feed it fresh food. Frozen foods are probably best used for water dishes or as an occasional treat. Some monitors also appreciate a high protein diet. When feeding frozen foods, a good food to use is frozen fish food. The advantage of frozen foods is that they are frozen and there is no risk of rotting, so it is convenient to feed them in a way you would feed frozen vegetables.
Another behavior which is an artifact of captivity is constant digging orclawing at the sides of the enclosure. Sometimes this digging orclawing is just an adjustment phase the lizard will go through before itsettles in, but if it is still digging and clawing at the sides after aweek or so, consider it a warning that its housing conditions are inadequate. there is something in its enclosure which is missing that the monitor instinctively knows it needs. Does it have enough space? Is there a large enough range of temperatures for the monitor to warm up to its preferred body temperature and to cool off when it needs to? It is too dry? Too humid? Is there a suitable hide spot? I notice that my arguses, which are kept in large enclosures with acomplex environment, do not usually dig unless theysmell food, and although sometimes they will try and get out the window,this behavior is fairly infrequent (at least once they adjust to their newhome). Be aware that gravid females will often dig, dig, dig. They are trying to make a nest for their eggs, and will dig in every available cornerto try to make one. Otherwise, the best thing is to providea nest box for the female.
Please help me, I have contacted Dell and Microsoft about this, and I think they have just brushed me off. I also need to know if Vista 32 bit is compatible with a 64bit processor. I have a Dell PC that was a gift and my friend is a non technical person. 827ec27edc
