An interesting recap on some of the new species found in the last year including two 6' long Monitor species. Who says there aren't large land vertebrates still awaiting discovery!

Thanks for this, Roman. I would love a 6-foot, fruit-eating monitor!

Take care, Richard.

What's the general size of the Butaan? Also, if it's eating habits are anything like the Gray's their diets can be pretty specialized, though i think Ben Aller has kept some rescues successfully. Not sure if he still has them though

If you mean the newly discovered Varanus bitatawa they are comparable in size (5-6 feet) to Gray's and it sounds like their diets are pretty similar.
