Varanid Interests strives to bring you the absolute finest in captive bred monitor lizards. Specializing in the African species of varanids, we currently work with Whitethroats, Blackthroats, common Niles and Ornate Niles. We will add Argus monitors and Crocodile monitors in the future to our list of available captive bred monitors. All of our breeding stock is a fed a high quality diet and most of the lizards are housed outdoors.
My book about Nile monitors will become available in February from Barron's Educational Series Publishing. This is the only book of its kind to detail the ecology, morphology, husbandry and captive propagation of a single species of monitor lizard. There are over eighty full color photos and detailed chapters on Nile monitor diets and cage building. The book will be available through This is an example of our colony of South African Whitethroat monitors. As you can see, this specimen represents the beautiful, banded variety. This particular male has sired offspring for us in the past and we expect to have more of his offspring available later this year.

Komodo Dragons Komodo dragons are the largest lizards in the world. They can reach a length of 10 feet and a weight of over 250 pounds! Komodo dragons are endangered animals. There are only about 5,000 Komodo dragons left living on four small islands of Indonesia. Komodo dragons got their name from the island on which they were first discovered - Komodo Island. Some people also call them "Komodo Island monitors" because these animals belong to the monitor lizard group. Monitors have tapered heads, long necks, snake-like tongues, strong legs, and powerful tails. They are meat-eaters. They may attack living animals or feed on decaying meat. Savannah monitors (also known as Cape monitors) and Nile monitors are also family members of monitors.
Despite their large size, Komodo dragons are fast short-distance runners. They can run as fast as 12 miles per hour for a brief period of time! However, Komodo dragons rarely chase after their prey. Instead, they are stealth predators - they hide and sit motionlessly for hours to wait for their food to come nearby. When Komodo dragons spot a prey, they ambush it by running out of their hideouts at top speed! Komodo dragons may use different attack strategies depending on the size of their prey. If Komodo dragons are ambushing a larger prey, such as a deer or a water buffalo, they attack its feet first in order to knock the prey off balance. If they are dealing with a smaller prey, such as a bird or a young Komodo dragon, they go for its neck first.

Curriculum vitae
Monitor lizards ( Varanus ) are represented by approximately 50 species, found in Africa, Asia, and Australia. The basic monitor lizard body plan is similar in all species, although Varanus is a very diverse group, differing widely in size (ranging in size from less than 20cm to over 3m snout-vent length), habitat preference (aquatic to arboreal), and diet (carnivorous to frugivorous). Study of the evolution of this remarkably divergent group of lizards requires a highly corroborated, well-tested phylogeny. Previous hypotheses of Varanus species relationships have been contradictory, unconvincing, and unrepeatable, due primarily to the nature of the evidence and methods employed. Monitor lizard phylogeny has been reconstructed from several sources of evidence ( ), but few hypothesized species relationships are corroborated, and the history of the group remains unclear. I have begun my research of evolutionary patterns and processes in Varanus by collecting a large body of mitochondrial DNA sequence data. Phylogenetic information will be derived from raw sequence data and (potentially) from gene order as well (

    Bosc's Savannah Monitor Lizard
    The Bosc's Monitor , reaching an adult length of 3 - 4 feet (in the wild), is one of the smaller of the six (or five) kinds of monitor lizards found in Africa. The others are the Desert Monitor (3.5 - 5 ft.) ( V. griseus ), Nile Monitor (5 - 7 ft.) ( V. niloticus ), Ornate Monitor (3.5 - 5.5 ft.) ( V. ornatus ), Eyed Monitor (2.5-3.5 ft.) ( V. ocellatus ) [Validity doubted by Daniel Bennett.], and the White-throated Monitor [Aliases Cape Monitor, Black-throated Monitor, Savannah Monitor] (3.5 - 6 ft.) ( V. albigularis ). At least one kind of monitor is found everywhere in Africa except in the very driest deserts or at elevations above 4000 feet. The Bosc Monitor is found in Africa generally south of the Sahara Desert and north of the equatorial rain forests. Different authors vary in their opinion as to the exact distribution. (Click on the small map to get to a full page distribution range map.)
    V. exanthematicus are opportunistic predators. They utilize their cryptic coloration to avoid detection as they search for food in the tropical savannah grasses. They eat just about any animal that they can overpower and will feed readily on carrion, (dead animals). Typical prey includes: insects (This is by far the most important food item.), eggs (all monitors love eggs), baby birds, snakes (even venomous cobras), baby tortoises, other lizards, frogs, and occasionally small mammals.

    89. How To Roast A Monitor Lizard
    or pests. In any case, I have seen one Igorot along the Mountain trailway back in the 80's rearing monitor lizards. So that means
    Roasting is very easy: prepare whatever is to be roasted, then Roast it... For animals, dress/skin it, spit it, roast it. How you roast something is entirely a different matter. A lot depend on the heating. It's up to you to add your spices, and to put anything you want, depending on your taste. Roasting a Monitor Lizard should be easy. Dress - errr, Shouldn't it be really undress? You'd skin it, spit it, then roast it. There is one problem though... The meat of the lizard has a certain fishy taste (Igorots describe this as "langsi"), although it tastes like Chicken. This is very much tasted on the meat near the viscera. So how should you roast it? This recipe also applies to snakes. Click here to see how snakes are roasted. This was made clear to me by my uncle, Daniel Ayochok. Way back when I was young, I caught a monitor lizard, but I did not want to bring it home because my previous experiences were such that whenever I brought something home, I did not get to have my fill of my own catch. So I thought of roasting it, and was starting to skin it at the farm when my Uncle passed by and saw me. He taught me. Thus, this recipe is not mine.
    Yeah, I know it is an endangered specie, but heck, in the Cordilleras, the favorite part of a lizard's menu are Chicks. To the Igorots in the past, the lizards were either prey or pests. In any case, I have seen one Igorot along the Mountain trail way back in the 80's rearing monitor Lizards. So that means, if one loves the taste (Not to mention that the skin is sold to shoe makers), You can have a Monitor Lizard farm. I do not encourage hunting here. I simply am posting a recipe. Get it, Mr Environmentalist?

    The Yellow Monitor has a snout-vent length 500-515 mm, tail 575-600 mm. The dorsum reddish brown, body and tail barred with alternating dark-edged reddish brown and dirty yellow bars, ventrum light yellow. Biology: Breeding activity is observed from April to June; 15-30 eggs are laid in burrows. There is no evidence that they lay eggs in termite mounds. Theobald (1868 in Riley et al 1985) must be referring to the Bengal monitor when he claims that monitor lizards oviposit in termitaria in Burma. Eggs are probably deposited in burrows in elevated areas to avoid the possibility of nest flooding (Das, pers. comm.). In India hatchlings appear in March. Equal numbers of males and females have been reported, but males appear to be more active during the mating season.

Varanus albigularis is a fairly large sized monitor lizard from Africa. These monitors can reach 4 to 6 feet in total length (tip of snout to end of tail). Varanus albigularis was once considered a subspecies of Varanus exanthematicus (Savannah Monitor).

    In retrospect, it might have been better to structure this area of phylospace on crown taxa: Anguimorpha = Anguis Xenosaurus + Varanus and Varanoidea = Heloderma Varanus . Then we could discuss Platynota = , even if it isn't clear that anything lived in that region that wasn't already accounted for as a Varanoid, except perhaps Parviraptor . As matters currently stand, I have used Varanoidea = Varanus Anguis Iguania Scincomorpha Gekkota Anguimorpha ... Necrosauridae (only Necrosaurus and Parviderma Proplatynotia Saniwides Paravaranus Telmasaurus Lanthanotidae Varanidae Varanus If this is correct, which it likely is, the neat division of Anguimorpha into Varanoidea and Anguoidea falls apart Anguoidea is paraphyletic and includes Varanoidea. In addition, there is an ugly mess of unaffiliated species between the slimmed-down Necrosauridae and the varanids. For the moment, things will be left as they are; although a major overhaul seems inevitable.

    MONITORS. Family VARANIDAE. Introduction. The varanids, better known as monitorlizards, constitute one of the smallest but most important families of lizards.
    Last updated 9 June 2000: added link to Brief Guide to Varanids (Monitor Lizards) and link to Daniel Bennett's monitor page.
    A look at the
    Family VARANIDAE
    The varanids, better known as monitor lizards, constitute one of the smallest but most important families of lizards. Whereas the success of geckos and skinks is doubtlessly due to their small size and adaptability, monitors must attribute their own success to their toughness, pugnacious and often large size. Some monitor species rank very highly in their local food chain, reaching the very top on the island of Komodo, Indonesia. Not all monitors are giants: there are some dwarf species in Australia that only reach about 12" or so. However, monitors can be characterised by the following: long, powerful tail used for defence: five digits on each foot, each with a fairly strong claw: a long neck: and a forked tongue very reminiscent of that of a snake. The eyes are round and lidded. All monitors are egg-layers. The psychology of most varanids varies from watchful to downright aggressive: certainly they are more fearless than many other lizards. Socially most monitors are also loners: there is no pair bonding or colonial structure, although rarely some individuals will return to the same mate each year. Monitor lizards as pets are a proposition that requires a lot of consideration on the part of the would-be owner. It has often been noted that the ones most commonly available (Savannahs, Niles and Water Monitors) often vary from indifferent to bad choices as pets. There are smaller species, but these are usually Australian in origin and hence either unavailable or extremely expensive. To keep the larger species, even medium-sized ones like Savannahs, requires a large cage and preferably some room for the monitor to exercise in, since they all too often grow fat and lazy in captivity. Some may also require a body of water for bathing. The temperament of the proposed species to be kept should also be checked out: Nile Monitors in particular are hard to tame down and often end up as bad-tempered and off-putting creatures who are a strain rather than a joy to keep.
