Synopsis

Unique among lizards, the monitors are in some ways more like birds and mammmals than like their smaller and less-active relatives. Their size and behaviour have long made them objects of fascination and myth wherever they are found. The Komodo Dragon, the world's largest lizard, is a central tourist attraction in Indonesia. This text provides information on the anatomical and physiological traits that have made the varanids such successful and spectacular animals. It deals with the lizard's ecology and behaviour, and includes a description, range map, diet, conservation status, and life history notes for each species, along with almost 200 references on varanid lizards. General guidelines for captive care are included. The book contains essential information for the professional herpetologist, dedicated pet owner, and reptile enthusiast.
