A goanna is a large Australian monitor lizard. They have sharp teeth for ripping flesh off bones and large claws for climbing trees. When they get scared they run to the nearest tree and climb up as fast and as far as they can in an attempt to escape danger… hence the saying, ‘Like a goanna up a tree’ (which means to go really fast).
