    Default Rock Monitor.

    On the way home this afternoon, I found this rock monitor (kliplikkewaan) in the road. I stopped to move him out of the road and he displayed his gratitude by trying to bite me.

    Much awesome. I presume you sternly admonished him for being so unthankful...

    I would also bite you if I was sun bathing and someone tried to move me

    What a handsome guy - I believe they can inflict nasty bites.

    Don’t take life too seriously, no one gets out alive.

    We had a serious discussion about attitude, basic manners and the going rate, per cm², of leguaan skin in the muti market...
