Spotting a Lace Monitor in the Wild

Sometimes a simple walk to the beach can be an adventure.

We encountered this lace monitor (Varanus varius) in the coastal forest at Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia. We were privileged to observe its natural behavior–sensing the presence of prey and other monitors, and also marking its territory. Definitely an Earth Minute.
