New Monitor Lizard Species found in the Philippines

A new monitor lizard species was found in Sierra Madre, Philippines and is part of Top 10 New Species for 2011.

Each year the International Institute for Species Exploration (IISE) announces a list of the Top 10 New Species for the preceding calendar year. 1 of the Top 10 New Species listed was found in the Philippines, it's called the Northern Sierra Madre Forest monitor lizard and can grow up to 2 metres (6.6 ft) long! It's funny how scientists missed something this huge walking around in the forest. It also makes you wonder what else it out there waiting to be discovered.
