24 Jun What Animal Am I?
It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!
Let’s hear from this week’s guest:
Thanks for having me on What Am I Wednesday! Can you guess what animal I am?
I’m a member of the monitor family native to Eastern Australia.
I’m a fairly large reptile, growing up to 2m and weighing around 14kg!
I like to spend much of my time in large trees and usually come down for food.
I am a carnivore and love to eat birds, insects, eggs, other reptiles and small mammals. I’ll also munch on carion if the opportunity arises!
If I have a big feed I’m usually able to go many weeks without eating again.
Can you guess what I am?
