Little known Rusty Monitor – Varanus Semiremex
The Rusty Monitor is a small species of goanna with a preference for inhabiting mangrove communities. Until recently it was also one of Australia’s most poorly known reptile species. Today their true status in the wild is still unknown. The combination of lack of knowledge and the clearance of mangrove habitat make the Rusty Monitor a cause for concern.
My understanding is these guys are, or about to be put on the Endagered list.
