Mitchells Water Monitor, Varanus mitcheli

Doongan Station, Kimberley, WA

These rather secretive little goannas forage for fish, frogs, crustaceans and other invertebrates amongst rocky streams of
northern Australia, sheltering in rock crevices and tree hollows. When unthreatend, they carry their tail with a loop at the back.

60 cm (total length).
