I ordered an Asian water monitor and received him within a few days (weather delays). They had to hold it a day or two because of storms. The only real complaint I have is that I was given the wrong tracking number but the guys at Florida herp were very helpful in correcting the problem. Once the little guy came the box was in good shape and the heat pad was still warm. He's a little skinny but nothing a few meals won't fix. He's very active when being held and does everything he should ie eat poo bask explore. I was told a water monitor would have something wrong with it since it wasn't coming from NERD and it couldn't be healthy and it would be mean and not interact. I'm glad I didn't listen to those people because not only is the price a steal but he is super friendly and healthy. I would recommend Florida herps to anyone and I will definitely do business with them again.

My asian water monitor showed up healthy and fat also in great condition shipping was really fast but one issue was the heat pack did not do its job so he showed up freezing cold but do to my knowledge i heated him up and he lived luckily now hes growing super smart definetly would buy from here again but in summer
Your low temp was -2F the day your little guy arrived! Michigan in Feb is pretty cold!
Glad he arrived in good shape!

I received my precious baby about 2 hours ago, and he/she is doing great, exploring its new surroundings and swimming in the "pool" all morning! Now he/she is burrowing and taking a nap after the long voyage and a very strange morning full of new places. Very lively little thing, I'm already in love with it and fascinated just watching it!
Also, Florida Herps was very quick to respond and seemed very nice! Thanks again, I have wanted one of these beautiful animals forever!

My new baby monitor arrived healthy and full of energy. I emailed Florida herps about some questions regarding diet to ensure I was giving him what he needed, and they were great with answering my MANY questions! Great animal and great customer service! Definitely going to them next time.

I had bought an Asian water monitor from Underground Reptiles one week prior to ordering from here and she died two days after arrival. After refusal of a refund or being sent a healthy animal, I turned to different places to pick up a friend. I ordered my monitor in the very early hours of the day and she was shipped out the very same day. Two weeks later and she's still healthy and dear as ever. I will certainly be coming back here again!

I received my baby water monitor a little while ago and I already love him.He/she came around 10am on a tuesday morning. The package was sealed and was handed to me correctly by the delivery man, but upon opening i realized the heating pack inside wasn't warm at all so i put the small monitor in his new home and quickly warmed up and began exploring.He/She seems to be healthy but i did realize upon further observation it had what seemed like a small scar on the side. I don't know if it came from a fight or rubbing too hard against something but it doesn't seem to bother him too much ill have to keep an eye on it. The little guy is still skittish but hes making small improvements and to be honest im glad to see he has the energy. He/she ate from the start and is an eager eater just not when im around unfortunately(lol). Thank you Florida Herps for sending me the little guy(who im hoping turns out to be a guy at least)i recommend this site for anyone who wishes to buy one.

I purchased a baby water monitor from Florida Herps and I couldn't be happier. It is sightly skittish at first then quickly calms down and is extremely docile. It likes to be petted.. She/he really seems to enjoy it especially In front of her ears.
Very good eater. She/he gently takes cricket from tongs..Then thrashes them and gulps them down.

Once they came available he shipped fast was alert on unboxing heat pack was still warm he seems to be farm bred all he does is hide and don't want to eat when anyone is around all I can do is hope he is eating when the lights go out but besides that he is a nice monitor good colors no blemishes customer service in emails could have been better and you can never seem to get through on the phone
Response from Florida Herps:
Hi Mike! Thank you for the review. I did go back and read all your emails. What about them do you have a problem with? All I see if you asked the same question over and over about when they are going to be in stock and us replying with the same answer. Sorry if the same answer upset you, but what more can we tell you than they are not in stock yet? Sorry if we missed your phone calls, I see no voicemail or we would have called you right back. However the answer given over the phone would have been the same as email. Thank you again and enjoy the little guy!

This was a birthday present to my son for his 14th birthday. It came to us exactly as promised and they answered my sons many many text messages! Needless to say "Chompers" is amazing and so incredibly tame. My son hand feeds him and takes him everywhere with him.His favorite place is inside my sons shirt! I would highly recommend this company to anyone thinking of ordering anything from them ,and we will be using them again!!Thanks guys!! Cami and Skyler

We received our water monitor this morning and he is so cute. I thought he'd be shipping aggressive but he wasn't. Very nice. He loves his tank we had set up for him. He is a fast swimmer. Thanks so much florida herps. We will definitely be purchasing more for our reptile collection.
