Bogert's monitor

Extract from A Little Book of Monitor Lizards © D. Bennett 1995. Viper Press, UK

Varanus bogerti Mertens 1950

Bogert's monitor is usually considered a subspecies of Varanus prasinus but was raised to specific status by Sprackland (1991). It differs from V.prasinus in that it is entirely black and differs from V.beccari by having more ventral and midbody scale rows (87-90 and 95-99 vs. 70-79 and 81-86 in V.beccari). It has been recorded from Fergusson and Normanby Islands, south of Huon Gulf and St Aignan in the Louisade Archipelago. Live specimens are unknown and nothing its known of the lifestyle of this apparently highly arboreal monitor lizard.

About Mampam
Savannah Monitor Book

 

Our pet-owners' guide to savannah monitor lizard is the first ever written by people who have studied the animals in the wild and bred them in captivity. There are at least seven books in print about the savannah monitor, but we think this is the only one worth reading! Last few available

Monitoring Individuals 3
The best way to monitor individual butaan would be to extract DNA from fresh feces found on the forest floor. We can find the feces but we cannot afford the analysis!
