I’ve seen the monitor lizard perched way up in the tree in Pulau Ubin, but in my mini plot of sanctuary, I’ve seen at least 2 monitor lizards in the grass. I know there are at least 2 because I’ve seen a rather big one, at least 1.5 metres long vs another smaller one, 1 metre long.
This one is the smaller one.
I’ve been told that the way to differentiate the species of monitor lizard is to look at the length of the nose to the eyes. I’m not sure how to though. Note to self: check this up!
