WHAT THEY EAT
They have wide ranging diet including insects, reptiles and small mammals, even raiding bird nests eating their eggs. Lace monitors have a forked shape tongue that transfers scent information into their mouth.
Lace monitors are solitary but will come together during breeding season; typically in spring. Females have been known to mate with multiple partners. She will lay 6-12 eggs, preferably in a termite mound, relying on termites to seal the hole. The eggs will remain there for 8-9 months before the female will return to dig them out.
