One can find Asian monitor lizards in humid areas near canals. In order to eat, they come out during the dry season when there is less rainfall. However, these lizards are the second biggest lizards after the comodo dragon. They can live for 22 years in captivity. This lizard’s venom has a lighter effect on humans as it only uses it to kill its prey. Last but not the least, one does not want to provoke this lizard as they are shy and can attack if provoked.
