PREVIOUS LIZARD NEXT LIZARD Thailand

Monitor lizards love to be in the water and are excellent swimmers, hence their epithet water lizards.

 

They swim by driving themselves through an undulating motion of the tail  that also acts as a rudder whilst keeping the limbs to the side of their body. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
