Noahs Ark Animal Sanctuary
SPONSOR MONSTER THE LIZARD FOR A DAY OR WEEK
Monster the black throat monitor lizard was left at Animal Control after attacking and nearly killing his owner’s 45 pound dog. The dog received the worst of the injuries resulting from the fight, but Monster had deep puncture wounds and lost half of his tail, so he was brought to us at Noah’s Ark. Despite his large size (25 pounds) and sharp claws and teeth, Monster is actually a great guy and enjoys being taken out by his keepers for weekly soaks in the bathtub. Many people purchase monitor lizards as babies and become quickly overwhelmed with their size, needs and attitude. They are very intelligent and potentially dangerous lizards and should only be kept by experienced reptile keepers who are willing to provide them a home for life.
