Abstract

The intraspecific relationship between standard metabolic rate (VO2; ml hr(-1)) and body mass for Varanus giganteus is 0.0896 g(0.90) at 25degrees C and 0.126 g(0.96) at 35 degrees C. The relationship betweenVCO2 (ml hr(-1)) and body mass is 0.052 g(0.92) at 25 degrees C and 0.094 g(0.97) at 35 degrees C. The common slope for the intraspecific mass exponent at the two body temperatures of 25 and 35 degrees C was 0.93 for VO2 and 0.95 for VCO2. Where these data for V. giganteus are considered in conjunction with those from recent studies of other varanids, the interspecific scaling exponent for Varanus is approximately 0.9; this is similar to the intraspecific scaling exponent for V. giganteus and other varanids.
