Peach Throat Monitors for sale at Outback Reptiles
Peach throat monitors, also known as Varanus jobiensis, are a medium-sized monitor lizard native to New Guinea and surrounding islands. They are highly sought after by reptile collectors due to their unique appearance and fascinating behavior. Peach throat monitors get their name from the distinctive peach-colored throat patch that is visible when they are excited or threatened. They are also characterized by their sleek, elongated bodies, sharp claws, and powerful tails. Peach throat monitors are highly active and intelligent lizards, and require a large, secure enclosure with plenty of climbing structures, hiding places, and a water source for swimming. They are carnivorous, and will feed on a variety of prey including insects, small mammals, and birds. While they can be challenging to care for due to their specific requirements, experienced reptile keepers find them to be incredibly rewarding pets.
