Giant Monitor Lizard Wandering on Australian Beach

Lace monitor lizards (Varanus varius) aka tree goanna are common lizards native to eastern Australia. This one was wandering the beach at Etty Bay, Queensland while I was waiting for cassowaries to show up. These lizards get up to 2 meters (7 feet) long!!! They’re about as common as squirrels in that part of Australia, but they’re still really cool animals. Enjoy the video!
