Monitor Lizards play a very important role in the food chain of Sri Lanka’s lagoons and forests, if they make it through the first year. Mature Monitor Lizards can grow up to 8 feet (2.4 meters) long, making some of them the largest reptiles on Earth. A mother’s role ends with the laying of eggs and hatchlings are left to fend for themselves, find food and keep to the relative safety of the trees.
When you’ve clawed your way to the top of the food chain, you have to fight to stay there. Experience this harsh reality through the eyes of the determined predators that rely on skill, instinct and evolution to survive.
