Dragons of a Singapore lilypond

So a couple of weeks ago my Singapore connections week was largely dragon themed with flying dragon lizards, dragonfish in ponds and captive leafy sea dragons. I could've filled out the week with dragons if I'd wanted thanks in part to the Singapore Botanic Gardens lily-pond.

Below is dragon #1. This may be one of my favourite photos ever. Not sure why, I just love it.

I'm afraid I have no idea of the species.

I also have no idea of what dragon #2 is.

I'm thinking you were maybe expecting something more scaly, reptilian and menacing as a result of my use of the word dragon? Well there were a few of these swimming across or wandering around the pond as well.....

Nice! Especially the monitor, of course.

Yes, he'll do just fine!

All three of them are fabulous-- lucky you!! What kind of monitor is he/she, do you know? (I was once acquainted with a Dumeril's and they're also lovely.)
