Monitor lizard in the 'hood!

Well, Lucy and I just saw our first monitor lizard, just a half hour ago, along our path to East Coast Park (and Starbucks). She inexplicably high-tailed it to that location when we were a few meters away.... (I was thinking, what the....?)... this meter-long slithery thing came out from behind a tree. Thought it was a snake at first, then I saw the raptor-like head...... Of course, I didn't have a camera, or even my iPhone, but thought I'd share a video taken of a couple in the Botanics. Apparently, they are very common here. Glad Lucy was on the leash - not sure what kind of melee would have ensued...
