Green tree monitors originate from New Guinea, as well as several adjacent islands. They are ideal for the advanced keeper.
In captivity green tree monitors are fed daily on a staple diet on insects but in the wild they have a wide variety of prey including katydids, stick insects, cockroaches, beetles, centipedes, spiders, crabs, birds, and small mammals.
Living for approximately 5 – 10 years they can grow between 75-100 cm and need to be fed daily.
Green tree monitors are one of the few social monitors, living in small groups made up of a dominant male, several females, and a few other males and juveniles.
