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?
