A definitive and authoratative book on Australia's Reptiles and Frogs.  It is now available on CD-rom along with over 100 definitive reptile-related publications - It is a STORR'S MONITOR Varanus storri Mertens, 1966
The Storr's Monitor attains 30 cm and is very common around Townsville and Charters Towers, Queensland. It also occurs in scattered localities in north-western Queensland, the Northern Territory and the Kimberleys in Western Australia. There is some uncertainty as to whether specimens identified as V. primordius from the Northern Territory are of a different species, although most heropetologists believe that they are.
Although V. storri are primarily an inhabitant of rock outcrops in dry forest and savannah, this lizard will move into adjacent habitats when suitable cover is provided by human development. The Storr's Monitor is common in Charters Towers Cemetery where it lives around tombstones and other garden objects.
The world's first captive breeding of the species was by Richard Bartlett of Florida, USA.
In the wild, female, appear to outnumber males at a ratio of about two to one.

The above was from the book Australian Reptiles and Frogs by Raymond Hoser and now available on a fantastic CD-Rom along with a vast amount of other information, papers and the like on reptiles, frogs and other wildlife.
