Spiny-tailed Monitor, boy looking for a girl

Filed under: Places to visit, San Diego Zoo — Tags: — washaw @ 6:00 am

Many of my regular readers have been thinking “wonder when is he going to show us a Ridge-tailed or Spiny-tailed Monitor?”   Well, your wait is over. Here he is, varanus acanthurus acanthurus, the spiny-tailed monitor.

Again, we have only a male at the San Diego Zoo but Fresno and San Antonio have ONLY a female. I’m not kidding, check for yourself.  I’m thinking about getting an appointment with the reptile people and talk this over.  What do you think?
