Philippine Fauna

New lizard and new cute animal for my collections, thanks to Isabel :)
Varanus salvator (water monitor lizard) is a large lizard native to South and Southeast Asia. Water monitors are one of the most common monitor lizards found throughout Asia, and range from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India to Indochina, the Malay Peninsula, and various islands of Indonesia, living in areas close to water.
Tragulus napu (greater mouse deer)  is solitary and nocturnal. It uses small trails through thick brush in the forest. It was thought to be regionally extinct in Singapore until it was rediscovered on an offshore island in 2008. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest.
