[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was crossing a road when I found this reptile taking a sun bath right in the middle of the road.

The lizard was almost 4 feet in length and had a fat belly.

If someone can comment on the picture and the details of the reptile.

Hi Sujoy. Great photo of a huge lizard. Since it has a long neck, this is a Varanus species.
Best regards

Hi Sujoy,
Nice encounter with this monitor lizzard.
Details are lost because of the direct sun light. One of the way to avoid this is to use a fill-in flash.

Namastay Sujoy,

Lovely capture of this pretty young Varanus lizard, i think it is a juvenile Malayan Water Monitor lizard V. salvator.
TFS and have a nice Sunday!
