White Throated Monitor

Although primarily a terrestrial species, the White throated monitor will climb trees to hunt for prey, to reproduce, and to avoid predators.

If confronted on the ground by a predator, such as a honey badger, it will puff up its throat and body, lash out with its tail, and bite violently. Each year, a female may lay two clutches of up to 50 eggs.

DID YOU KNOW? Monitor lizards have lock jaw, which means once they bite something they won't let go until they want to.
