Re: Documentary on monitor lizards

I'm pretty certain this story is at least partially contrived. 

"Besides the cuteness factor, the big lizards are being credited by locals for 
keeping the feral dog and cat population under control, as well as eliminating 
other local pests such as rodents, snakes, and the homeless."



"I am impressed by the fact that we know less about many modern [reptile] types 
than we do of many fossil groups." - Alfred S. Romer
