Asian Water Monitor


A very orange asian water monitor (Varanus salvator) picks up its head to gaze at us while basking on a comfortable rock, in situ. Water monitors prefer wetter climates in comparison to the arid savannas of Komodo and Rinca. The only location where their range overlaps with the Komodo Dragon is at the west tip of Flores island, though Komodos are infrequently seen there.
