REPTILES OF THE WORLD - MONITOR LIZARDS

Crocodile Monitor

Varanus salvadorii


John Fowler & Rachel Barnes


Distribution:-  New Guinea

Comments:- This prehensile tailed monitor is believed to be longest species of lizard in the world, growing to a maximum length of  2.44 metres (8.01 ft.)
However this species does not weigh as much as the Komodo Dragon. The Crocodile monitor is sometimes confused with the Asian Water Monitor - Varanus salvator.
