Lizards are common in the rainforests of Northern Queensland Australia. I was about to take a picture when this Asia Water Monitor whizzed suddenly and unexpectedly by. This caused me fright and camera jiggled a bit. Despite this and the fact that lizards like this blend in well with the background you can see the bright markings on the dark colour of its body. This lizard is harmless however it is best to wear heavy boots and be in long thick pants because of the several poisonous snakes also in this area.
