The dinosaurs live!

Or so I thought when I saw this video clip. A colleague from uni filmed it out at her parents' farm last weekend.

It's a goanna, a type of monitor lizard, and yes, it's as big as it looks -- around 1.5 metres long (5ft or so). These things like hanging out up trees, which is a bit scary. And they wander around quite happily on their hind legs. They can even run two-legged.

All I can say is *wow*.

(You need to click on the blue link to get the file, not on the picture. And sorry about the combination of large file size and crappy quality. The clip is about 2 MB. I had compression issues.)
