    Lace Monitor in the wild

    Hi all,

    I'm new. I see a lot of reptiles in my trips to the bush and so plan to publish a lot of my shots of them in the wild. I had this one identified by Museum Victoria as a Lace Monitor (Varanus Varius).. Lace Monitor (Varanus Varius)

    It ran up a tree when I startled it.

    I'm actually looking for someone with a good knowledge who can help me identify species when I publish a new photo.

    Anyone interested in helping out? It's a non profit site so it'd just be for the fun of it... I would of course credit you on the images.

    Anyway enjoy my Lace Monitor pic.

    1/2 an hour after the 1st there are 2 others heating up.
    The male is just waking up. He's always last to wake up and 1st to bed.
    He's much smaller than the others so i'm now feeding him more to boost him up.
    He'll eat from my hand and let me stroke his back.
    And the 1st girl up is running around like a cartoon clown.

    Hi Richard, Congratulations on hatching your Pygmy-Mulga Monitor's, hope the 3rd one has now hatched from its egg.
    l see here that your still keeping what was my 2 adult male ( Desert Sand Monitor's - Varanus Gouldii Flavirufus ) in your garage, you told me way back in September the outdoor enclosure l myself kept them in here at my place would be set-up for them outdoor by October, its so sad to see there not out enjoying the natural sunlight like they did here at my place.

    And l read here in this post that you now have a female Sand Monitor, that is half Gouldii and Falvirufus, not 100% Varanus Gouldii Flavirufus like all my ones are, and you will use the 2 adult Flavirufus males to breed with that female you just got, which means the juveniles with be 25% Gouldii and 75% Flavirufus not 100% Flavirufus like the 2 adult males you got from me are.

    l know you will find it very difficult to get hold of a Varanus Gouldii Flavirufus from Alice Springs NT, where what were my 2 adult males both came from natually from the wild on permit of cause, and here is a photo of the 2 male Desert Sand Monitor's you got from me in September 2009.
