Sorry for website disappearing 21 Feb 2018 Our servers are booting back up, and we should have all services online soon. It looks like the gas and electric company in Fremont hit the power line, and caused a blackout.

Return of the water monitor lizard

I was visiting a secondary school near the office the other day and I saw another water monitor lizard. I wrote about this species before, and I put it on my Thailand page.

I very much doubt that I saw the same animal; although it was the same size as the first sighting. It appeared in a secondary school I was visiting. I think it came from an ornamental pond, although I did not see it leave the water. The lizard entered the school through an open door and promptly climbed a staircase up to a walkway on the first floor. I heard various screams from some of the girls, but I was on duty downstairs so I did not have to go and help! The animal then reappeared to me on the edge of the balcony of the first floor. It waited there for a little while until it decided to jump down in one leap. It performed a loud 'bellyflop' on the tarmac below, and then ran off into some bushes near the building. I didn't see it again. I am surprised it could still walk after a leap like that!

So, after a few months (in August 2016) I have just seen a specimen of about 2 metres in length in a ditch in the Saphan Mai district of Bangkok. It was very shy when it saw me, but I had time to get a few photographs. Water monitor photo

Apologies for interactive English being unavailable

I must apologise for interactive English being unavailable. I may have to move to another server, so please be prepared for some more downtime. This is all due to circumstances beyond my control. I am removing dead links and getting things updated.
