Savannah Monitor Eats More Rabbits on Carpet

Video is made public for the citation for junior high school, and high school science reports. Also recommended for college and graduate level source citation for zoological biostatistics. This video focuses on the science of reptile behavior that supported a master's thesis in zoology. Two points of this video. One, predatory reptiles generally know instinctively to avoid wasting resources in dispatching small and harmless prey; and two, this video demonstrates how predatory lizards devour prey by a common method of "grab and gulp". Monitor lizards are opportunistic predators. These lizards eat carrion, but like most monitors, their diet is largely made up of invertebrates and small mammals. Filmed with the University of Guadalajara for Biological and Agricultural Sciences, the division of Biological and Environmental Science Division, at the department of Botany and Zoology.
