WEC293: Florida Invader: Nile Monitor Lizard

Figure 2. The Nile Monitor's head is gray-brown and marked with light-colored, V-shaped marks across the neck—these marks extend forward through the eyes. The fleshy, forked tongue is blue. The narrow neck is longer than the head. Credits: Patrick Lynch, South Florida Water Management District, 2009
