The sand goanna (Varanus gouldii ) is a species of large Australian monitor lizard, also known as Gould's monitor, the sand monitor, or racehorse goanna. In some Aboriginal languages, the sand goanna is called bungarra, a term commonly used by nonaboriginal people in Western Australia, too. The name "sand monitor" can be used to describe various other species. The specific name, gouldii, is a Latinized form of the name of the scientist who first described this species, English ornithologist John Gould. Order: Squamata, Suborder: Lacertilia, Family: Varanidae, Genus: Varanus, Species: Varanus gouldii (Gray, 1838).
