#WildlifeWednesday: The 'likkewaan'

Post a comment 0

The rock monitor, or 'likkewaan', is this week's #WildlifeWednesday animal.

Local to South Africa, can grow up to 1,5m, and weigh up to 8kg, making it one of the heaviest lizards found in Africa.

They are quite intelligent, and it has been proven that they can count up to six!

They have very powerful jaws, and it's difficult to make them let go once they've caught something in their mouth.

They are fearsome predators and will eat almost anything they can catch.
