Savanna Monitor Lizards are African Monitor Lizards that can obtain a maximum size of about 2.5 feet (0.7 meters) long. Their tails store fat to reserve energy and their tough skin is hard to tear.

Food choicesEdit

These monitors eat insects, small mammals, eggs, birds, smaller Monitor Lizards, snakes, and the remains of dead animals.

Ways of DefenseEdit

Savannah monitors are said to be immune to most snake poison, can expand their throat and body, and will make a low hiss-like sound when they are threatened.
