WEST PALM BEACH, FL - JULY 11: Jennifer Ketterlin Eckles, Florida Fisheries and Wildlife Biological Scientist, (L) and Murray Stanford, Senior Fisheries/Wildlife Technician, set a trap for a Nile monitor lizard along a canal on July 11, 2011 in West Palm Beach, Florida. Sightings of monitor lizards in Broward and Palm Beach counties have increased this summer, prompting biologists with the Exotic Species Coordination Section of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and others to begin surveying and trapping efforts. Nile monitors are large, predatory lizards native to Africa. This species nests around water, and the FWC is concerned about potential predation in bird rookeries.
