Mertens' Water Monitor - Varanus Mertensi

These are one of the largest of the water monitors in Australia, They rarely bite but will use that long tail as a whip when annoyed. They are reasonably easy to keep and LOVE their food. They’re not a pet to be kept so you can hold them, more to be looked at, and when their enclosure is set up with ponds, waterfalls and plants ect, it can be an awesome feature in any yard.
