Black Tree Monitor
- Aru Islands off New Guinea
- Smaller lizards
Native to the Aru Islands, these carnivorous monitors begin their lives with yellow-colored spots.
By the time they are fully grown, they will be 3 to 4 feet in length and have turned completely black. Overly long, prehensile tails and large claws allow these arboreal lizards to live and hunt in the trees.
