Easy there, big fella.
Spotted this guy or gal at the Botanic Gardens, digging through the leaf litter and eating earthworms.
Monitor lizards are big. This one was about 4 feet long. They’re in the same genus as Komodo dragons, and are named for their mildly terrifying habit of standing up on their hind legs to take a look around if they’re concerned.
Luckily for me, this one was mostly concerned with his or her lunch.
