The Water Monitor is a large species of Monitor Lizard and is found throughout Asia. Larger specimens can grow to over 10 feet in length and can weight over 50 lbs, but most are around half that size. They're carnivorous, and their diet comprises of snakes, frogs, rodents, birds, fish and even carrion. I photographed this one in Ruhunu National Park, Sri Lanka.
