  • All monitor lizards, are characterized by their forked tongue, which usually is reserved for snakes in nature.

  • They spend most of their nights underground in burrows and go out hunting for anything they can during the day. 
  • Are primarily terrestrial (live on the ground), but are able to climb trees and swim
  • Juveniles are mainly insectivores because they lack the teeth to eat snails 
  • Males try to intimidate each other by hissing, thrashing their tails, and inflating their throats

  • Highly sensitive forked tongue and Jacobson's organ
  • Flick their tongue 20-40 times every 2 minutes on average
  • If a prey item tries to escape, tongue flicking increases to about 160 flicks every 2 minutes to help the monitor locate and catch the prey
  • Lifespan is 10-20 years
  • Predators: Snakes, large birds of prey, and humans
  • This species is often killed for lizard skin leather products
