Local Names of Pan-African Monitor Lizards (Varanidae: Varanus: Polydaedalus)
African monitor lizards have a Pan-African distribution (Bayless, 2002). These lizards are known from generalized to specific habitats across Africa (Bayless, 1997). If studying zoology, herpetology, epidemiology, parasitology, or ethnography, it is helpful to know the local and regional names of these reptiles. To date, the most comprehensive listing of local names for Varanus has been written by Auerbach (1995:243-245). The following compilation includes the local names for each monitor lizard species listed by country, tribe, language, and source.
