Philippine sailfin lizard


Recommended Posts

Caught just now in the house (in the kids' room actually)

 

92 cm head to tail.

 

Local name is ibid.

 

Not 100% on the ID as sailfin lizard; anyone know for sure?

Bayawak is a monitor lizard. The pic of the one you caught is an ibid.

We had a big Monitor lizard for a while and it loved chicken livers.

Whelp, I had a good look at it, got the id, and some more photos...

 

and set it free to pursue its life 

 

as a sailfin lizard in the river out back.

the lizard must feel rather awkward now after going through alien abduction.

Yeah, they don't make very good pets.
