Peacock monitor, Varanus auffenbergi

Small (60cm) tree monitor from the Iland Roti, near to the iland Timor and therefore related to Varanus timorensis or a subspecies.

The peacock monitor (Varanus auffenbergi), also known commonly as Auffenberg's monitor, is a species of small monitor lizard in the family Varanidae. The species, which belongs to the subgenus Odatria, is endemic to Rote Island, Indonesia. It is similar to the Timor monitor (Varanus timorensis), with some differentiation in the underside coloring and patterns. The coloring patterns fade as these lizards reach adulthood. The peacock monitor has blue-grey ocelli, whereas the Timor monitor has cream-colored ocelli.
