What is in the middle picture? It looks like a comodo. But is it a monitor? Where have you clicked it. I remember catching one at Palta water works.

The middle one is of Pariyar.

Yes, in our locality too, smaller variety of Monitors are found. We found bigger sizes (biggest to us) in Vitarkanika.

According to our maid, we had a big black snake in our garden yesterday morning. It was trying to get out, but the wall was too high, so it slithered away. I wonder how one builds a ladder (one way!) for a snake!

Last week, Mrs N saw what she thought was a mongoose. Despite an all out (seemingly successful too) war against rats, with weekly pest control visits, we seem to have the things that feed on them and the the things that feed on the things that feed on them.

2 minutes later, this poor chameleon was dead. They are apparently "bad luck" so a guy smashed it with a large rock. I tried to stop him, but he thought I was crazy.
