Asian Water Monitor

Varanus salvator

Country of Origin: Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia

The Asian Water Monitor is a large species of lizard typically growing to 5-6ft in length and can weigh over 20kg. They are the World's second heaviest lizard after the Komodo Dragon.

In Thailand, the local name for a Water Monitor is synonymous with an insulting word for bad and evil things or people. The origin of this offensive meaning dates back to when Thai houses had a ground floor dedicated to domestic animals such as pigs and chickens. The Water monitors would enter the ground floor ad eat or maim the animals.

They are excellent swimmers, helped by their tail which serves as a rudder in water. Their typical habitat is mangroves, and wetlands though they have been known to inhabit human settlements where they may thrive in agricultural areas.

Their average lifespan is 10years with a range of 8-15 years.
