Monitor lizards after Ackies

Hello,

I currently have a trio of ackie monitors, I love this trio and I have decided to get another monitor, this time in a slightly larger or much larger package. I have narrowed my list down to either a savannah, blackthroat, or argus monitor. I like tame and active lizards hence why I like my ackies. Which one is best suited for me.

In terms of space, I have a spare room so housing doesn't matter.

Honestly, the best one, is the one you want (and can care for).

White throats have very similar personalities to Tegus and are cold tolerant like Tegus as well.

I have owned one Argus and he was a terror lol. Blackthroats and Whitethroats can both be pretty docile, for a monitor. I personally find Savs pretty boring. Have you look at Roughnecks?

White throats are pretty much a Tegu pretty cold talerante.

My dream monitor would be a bell phase lace monitor but I don’t live in Australia sadly lol

Seen pictures, a knockout.

My ultimate monitor wish is a a set up conducive to breeding crocodile monitors. Would come with a chain mail suit.
