That a tongue Laughing . I think you needed to get closer in on this one, Mike. Not that it is not a good image as is, but I think it would have more impact up close and personal with the tongue.

You know I used to drink like that at one time, back when I was a "rough neck." Laughing Of course I have mellowed out in my old age and now they just call me a redneck. Nice photograph of the lizard Mike. A closer look at that tongue might be interesting Very Happy

Good catch of the tongue...they always stop flicking their tongues when I point my camera at them!
BTW this does not look like a Varanus rudicollis as the snout is not pointy enough and a bit too wide. It could be one of those new Varanus salvator types from the Philippines....
