Goanna Sunbathing

GoannaThe name goanna is believed to be a derivative of iguana, which early European settlers likened this lizard to. (The goanna is actually a type of monitor lizard.) Australia has about 20 different species of goanna, which feed on other — smaller — reptiles, eggs, insects, and small mammals.

Goannas are big to begin with, and can, when threatened, rear up on their hind legs — scary!
