Monitor Lizard



This monitor lizard was enormous! It was easily six to eight feet in length, and approximately half a foot wide. It swam a lot around in the water, and when it got bored, it jumped onto the plain grassland nearby and spinned around. It had bumpy, scaly skin, which was an olive brown color, with some pale and dark yellow patches. It was very defensive and started to guard some little things that looked like eggs, when the tour boat came closer to take a better look.


We found this on the shores of the river, in the water, and on the land. There were about five to seven different ones walking around, guarding their eggs, while looking for food.
