Meeting with "Napoleon wrasse" in front of CHA CHA.

Meet Napoleon wrasse while diving / snorkeling in front of Cha Cha.

Young "Varnus salvator sp."??

We found monitor lizard in a hole, we think these are called "Varanus salvator sp."
They are still young ones and it's look like they were born there thus we are still wondering whether to save them or leave them there if there are enough food and comfortable for them in that hole... ummm...

They can swim and eat small fish or some marine life on the beach. We saw once it took big risk and came  out so far to hung around the reef when it's very low tide at lunch time. That one was almost 2 meter long (body1m, tail 1m long) monitor lizard.
