Wrestling Monitor Lizards of Thailand

fighting monitoring lizardsMonitor lizards can be seen roaming the streets and walkways of many city parks in Thailand. These lizards can be quite large, as big as 5 or 6 feet in length. They mostly keep to themselves, shying away from people who get to close. I have seen them eating dead fish and turtles in the Lumpini Park which is near where I live. On several occasions I have seen them fighting among themselves, in what I assume is related to their mating rituals. This picture shows two of the bigger guys in what appears to be hand to hand combat.
