Video on prehistoric Australian giant lizard

Megalania, skeleton reconstruction

Until about 45,000 to 15,000 years ago, there lived in Australia a very big monitor lizard, much bigger than the Komodo dragon, the biggest lizard species of today.

Estimates are from 5.5 to 10 meter size.

Its name is Megalania, or Varanus priscus.

This is a video on this prehistoric Australian giant lizard.
