What did you see on your walk today? #391 stars a Really Ferocious Beast. Or two.

So there I was, walking round Bangkok’s Lumphini Park, surrounded by hoards of late-afternoon runners (cue jealous emoji) and fellow walkers, and people working out on the exercise equipment when…

…all of a sudden…

…what did I see?…

A monitor lizard, cool as a cucumber.

I stopped to watch & gawp & film, but was the only one to do so.

Everyone else swept on right by, running, walking, or exercising.

Everyone, except yours truly, seemed totally blasé about a monitor lizard…hey, no…

…wait…

…just a mo…

…make that 2 monitors…

By the end of my walk, I must’ve seen about 7 different monitors. all part and parcel of the fun that is Lumphini Park.

To put the monitors in context, 3 years ago there were some 400 of ’em in the park!

400 😛

That must have been a sight.

Here’s a link to an article in Time magazine on Lumphini’s monitors. Makes my tally of 7 seem pretty dismal, right?!!

But it was such a thrill to see them, right there in the heart of this busy city.
