The Malayan Water Monitor Lizard is a surprisingly common site here in Singapore. They have crossed my path on many occasions and if I’m near water I almost always see one. In this years 2016 F1 Grand-prix, one made headlines all over the world as it sauntered across the asphalt race course. I always treat them with respect, they are naturally shy, but tend to ignore you if you don’t get too close. This fine specimen was digging up and devouring grubs.
