The animal of the day is the Monitor Lizard. (Did you know: The large lizards are known for their powerful claws! As a matter of fact, some female members of this family will use their claws to burrow into termite mounds. Once inside, they lay their eggs there! The termites immediately seal up the hole and provide the eggs with the perfect incubation temperature until they hatch. THEN, the female returns to knock a new hole in the mound to free her babies!
