Dusty

Animal Category: 
Common Name: 
Bosc Monitor
Scientific Name: 
Varanus exanthematicus
Notes: 

This is Dusty enjoying an egg. He is a Bosc Monitor and our largest lizard at around 3 foot long and weighing over 3kg at the moment. He came to us as a rescue having been under fed, so we do not know his age or if he will get to his full size (an impressive potential of 5 foot, but most commonly just over 4 foot). He is a friendly lizard but does have a tendency to poo on people if he wants to be put down.
