There have lately been reported sightings of a massive Reptile in Australia that many believe to be extinct since the last ice age. But it's obviously still out there.
Varanus prisca is what this Varanid Lizard is scientifically known as. Common names include the Giant Goanna and the Megalania. It is one of the largest Reptiles to share Earth with Humans. The species measures 23-26 feet long from snout to tail. Like many of Varanids (like Komodo Dragons and Lace Monitors), these giants can temporarily rear up on their hind legs to look more threatening, as well as also having the ability to detect scent particles in the air by flickering its tongue. Just like a Komodo Dragon, Megalanias can kill their prey with the toxic saliva they get from eating rotten meat. One bite and there's no escape.
Lately, folks in Australia have reported seeing this giant Lizard alive in both scrublands and woodlands. Some have even reported these giants breaking into their farms and eating their livestock! It has also been seen eating its true prey, like Emus, Kangaroos and Rhinoceros Wombats (Diprotodon).
They've also been known to compete with other local predators for food, like with Wedge-Tailed Eagles, Thylacines, Dingoes, Crocodiles and Lion Marsupials (Thylacoleo).
It's just like those visions in my dreams have been showing me! The age of natural harmony, where all recently-extinct life forms (done from Human-related causes) are returning for another chance!
