is a close relative of the more famous Komodo dragon (V. komodoensis).
We call it Biawak.
This is a rather large lizard; males grow to about 2.5 m or so.
It is still considered one of the most common large lizard we have!
Some specimens are also exported as pets.
If you like having monstrous sized pets and have the facilities to keep them properly,
this is the species to get!
I do NOT recommend this species as a pet for the average person!
Watching them in nature is a lot more fascinating than having a Komodo-dragon look-alike that begs for food in the house.
Grilled Biawak. An exotic food. I wish I was there, so that I could take a smell on the item.

Hmmm... this is a version of Kenny Roger's Roaster by the beach.
