Mini monitor
There are even pygmy monitors, which are not much longer than your finger. The smallest of all monitors is the one seen here, the short-tailed monitor (V. brevicauda), here held by our chief scientific advisor, Dr. Eric Pianka. All monitors, despite their size, show the same fierce attitude and cleverness.
