Feeding Green Tree Monitors (V prasinus)

We offer a variety of foods to our Veranus prasinus, the Green or Emerald Tree Monitor. Our pair will take:

  • live crickets
  • live dubia roaches
  • frozen/thawed pinkie mice
  • frozen/thawed quail chicks
  • frozen/thawed shrimp (limited success)
  • Repashy meat pie (no luck!)

Their primary diet is composed mostly of insects. We will release crickets into their enclosure, but feed dubia roaches from a feeding bowl suspended in the canopy. Pinkies and quail are offered as well.
