"Lost lizard" Rediscovered On Remote Pacific Island - New Atlas

A wily monitor lizard has dropped out of the ongoing competition for hide-and-seek champion of the world. Nearly two centuries ago a specimen was captured then lost, leaving biologists content with the belief all lizards on the Bismarck Islands are merely V. indicus. Not so anymore, and Ben Coxworth has the scoop. Perhaps some enterprising soul will chronicle this adventure much like this Midlands Native Who's Making A Film About The Local Urban Legend Of The 'Lizard Man'. The Creature of Scape Ore may not have a blockbuster budget, but Rick Carpenter steadfastly supports Reginald Fullwood's endeavor to immortalize Sumter County's local legend while creating jobs for the locals.
