Rosenberg’s Monitor, also known as the Southern Heath Monitor, is one two monitors or goannas in the Canberra region.

Rosenberg’s Monitor lays its eggs in termite mounds and any sightings at/near mounds might be an indication of breeding activity. If recording this monitor make note of nearby termite mounds if you think this is relevant. 

For more information on monitors, please read the general note on Monitors & Geckos.

Distribution: In the Canberra region they are found in more open areas from north of Canberra to just south of Cooma.
