  3. Great to see such a creature. The biggest one I once saw in Africa was a water monitor in the Kruger Park. The was a baby compared with this one.

    In my garden there are tiny lizards.

  8. Oh my gosh, it is walking right across the street! Just like a person, and with other people? Do they just walk around like that? It MAY be a Gila Monster?

  10. I can't help with the lizard ID but is an imposing creature. Too bad that classifying animals as either "good" or "bad" didn't end since biblical times.

  11. I love lizards but that one is just a little too large for me. It sure does move quickly.
