Nova: Lizard KingsDVD
They look like dragons, inspiring stories of man-eating, fire-spitting monsters with long claws and razor-sharp teeth. But these creatures are actually monitor lizards, members of an ancient family that includes massive Komodos-the largest lizards to walk the planet. With their acute intelligence, these lizards are a very different kind of reptile, blurring the line between reptiles and mammals. NOVA follows expert lizard hunter Dr. Eric Pianka as he tracks elusive monitors through Australia's heartland, and cutting-edge "lizard cam" technology provides a lizard's-eye view for an unparalleled close encounter with these amazing "living dragons".
