Black Headed Goanna (Varanus tristis)

The Black Headed Goanna is widespread over much of northern Australia, this lizard lives in trees or rocks, utilizing hollows and crevices for shelter. It is named for the dark brown to black coloured head that is characteristic of most adults from the western and central parts of its range.

This is a very shy and fast moving goanna that may cover up to one kilometre per day while searching for its diet of large insects, lizards, nestling birds as well as mouse sized mammals and marsupials.
