A Scavenger......


This  Water monitor (Varanus salvator) I've photographed occupies the same spot where the Waterhen family lives. It's said that when these scavengers consume a decent meal they lie motionless till it is properly digested. I believe it's true for when I took the bottom  picture yesterday, the creature's belly was enormous and it didn't move at all.
