These water monitors were about 1.5 to 2 metres in length though the photo doesn't show this. They are living wild in the river below but the locals entice them up to the road for fish to show people for some money. You can see one lizard further down the bank making its way up for some fish.
Was very hot muggy that day and my camera fogged up badly on opening the car door so had to do a bit of processing to get rid of the foggy look.
