Spotted Water Monitor

Varanus salvator macromaculatus
Deraniyagala 1944
Lat Krabang, Thailand. February 17, 2016

There is a small population of these large lizards in the park just behind our hotel in Lat Krabang. Later, we got to see many more monitors, and some quite large, in Lumphini Park in downtown Bangkok. In both cases, humans and monitors shared the park, and one group paid little attention to the other.
