    Biggest reptile I've seen in the wild was an armlength grass snake. So no. Biggest lizard was a fist sized toad.

    No giant lizards, pretty big snapping turtles if you go into certain parks/reservations. The only lizard I have seen are some type of skink. Once some asshole released a pet alligator in a reservoir.

    Yes. They're alligators. They swim back and forth in a pond and don't hurt anyone.

    Back where we used to live on a bushland property (only like 15km from current location), while wandering around one morning I came across at least a metre long lace monitor (or tree goanna they're called here) just sitting up in the grass getting some sun. Only one I ever saw there in 12 years there though.

    This isnt the biggest lizard I've seen here (there's actually a greener ones that are larger), but it was quite big for these types of wall lizards, and I nicknamed him "Godzilla".

            Yes it does. New fads on the internet that are based on low IQ misunderstandings of science are always wrong. Stop being so Reddit. It's painfully cringe to watch.

    Southeastern US. There aren't any big lizards here which is kind of weird. Florida has iguanas but those are not native, idk why the only native lizards are tiny the southeast seems like a good place for lizards

      It is a good place for lizards, but it wasn't until recently. Earth is just coming out of an ice age, so reptiles haven't had much time to get reestablished in the American Southeast (except for the recently extinct giant tortoises). It's no coincidence that one of the Southeast's most common lizards, the green anole, is virutally unchanged from its Caribbean cousins besides being a bit more cold-tolerant. If we had paused human development before it started for a million or two years, explorers discovering South Florida would probably find Cyclura and Chilabothrus (Caribbean boas) living there.

        >mfw 10,000 years ago there was an enormously large block of ice a mile tall that wiped away everything underneath it and our ecosystem has only started slowly recovering since then
        Am I the only one who thinks this is horrifying? North America came back from being a blank slate literally yesterday on a geological scale which is why we lack as much diversity in reptiles and stuff compared to Europe which wasn't wasn't as affected.

        Because anyone can just shoot them legally and monitors breed slow.

    He had blood in his mouth and seemed lethargic. Even tried to squeeze through an undersized fence like a cartoon character before realizing hes way too fat for that. I opened the gate and let him out. This is like the sixth time I've seen him so I hope hes doing alright now. Picrel is him from some months ago.

      Water monitors are a little too big, slow, and conHispanicuous to really get a major foothold in Florida. Compared to the other big non native reptiles in Florida, it's not too big of a shock.

      >green iguanas
      smaller, spend a lot of time in trees (harder to find/notice), herbivores (always food around), excellent swimmers
      >tegus
      smaller, omnivores (always food around)
      >Burmese pythons
      comparable in mass but nocturnal, snakes are better hiders in general (see reticulated pythons still existing even in major southeast asian cities), can go longer without food, shit out mountains of eggs and take care of them, excellent swimmers
      >Nile monitors
      Basically an Asian water monitor but smaller, faster, and meaner, all of which help it be more competitive and less easy for people to pick off with bb guns or machetes

      The two things Asian water monitors have going for them are being semi aquatic and being a reptile in a hot environment, but other introduced reptiles have those perks plus more. There's a ton of mid size semi arboreal/terrestrial lizards that have been released into Florida too, but a lot of them are getting outcompeted and replaced by red headed rock agamas (from Africa), who are relative newcomers. Eventually things will shake out to the point that only a handful of the most survivable introduced species remain, while the ones less suited to Florida won't.
