LACE MONITOR

LACE MONITOR, VARANUS VARIUS

The lace monitor resembles the giants of yesteryear. With its razor sharp claws and powerful tail these reptiles can intimidate the bravest of souls. Basking in the sun on top of a paperbark tree surrounded by the expanse of the Myall Lakes, this reptile is king of its domain.
