Abstract

We measured standard metabolic rate (SMR) for two small monitor lizards (Varanus caudolineatus and V. acanthurus) between 2400-0900 h, after the lizards had rested for at least 8 h and fasted for 60 h. There were no significant differences in mass-specific VO2 (ml g-1 h-1) between freshly caught and long term captive V. caudolineatus from the samelocation, but there was a significant difference between SMR for V. caudolineatus caught at different locations. The intraspecific mass exponents for VO2 values were generally higher than 0.75 for these small varanid species. The common mass exponent, for the three temperatures of 25, 35, and 40 C, was 0.86 for V. caudolineatus and 1.04 for V. acanthurus.
