Monitor Lizard Rescued From Storm Drain
Occurred on June 4, 2018 / Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Info from Licensor: "This enormous Nile Monitor Lizard (Varanus niloticus) managed to find itself in a storm water drain. Some plumbers had put a camera down into the pipe to look for a blockage, and this is how they discovered the lurking reptile!
These magnificent lizards, unfortunately, are often killed for food or traditional medicine, and some people on scene were keen to kill it. So I just had to get it out of there!"
