Living dragon
You may be familiar with the biggest and most famous monitor, the Komodo dragon (V. komodoensis), which can grow up to a formidable 10 feet in length. This one is "Raja," who lives at the London Zoo. But you may be surprised to discover that there are more than 60 species of monitors, spanning a wide range of habitats and behaviors, shapes and sizes.
