The Malaysian water monitor lizard (Varanus salvator). Monitors are mostly terrestrial. They occur in many habitats. I have seen them in forests, rice paddies and as well swimming in the seas. Despite their size up to 3 m. they are very timid animals, often fleeing when approached. They original name "waran" derives from Arabic language which means dragon.
