A huge lizard, with 12–40 feet (3.7-12 m) length, said to eat humans. In the 1930s, members of the American Museum of Natural History’s Archbold Expedition to the interior of Papua New Guinea were told of a man-eating dragon. Robert Grant and David George were exploring the Strachan Island District in 1961 when they encountered a gray lizard about 26 feet (8 m) long. Its neck was more than 3 feet (90 cm) long. An animal captured in swampland near the Gulf of Papua in 1980 by the Operation Drake Expedition proved to be a juvenile specimen of crocodile monitor. Its length has been variously reported as 6 feet 6 inches (2 m) and 7 feet 3 inches (2.2 m) long. One of the group’s zoologists, Ian Redmond, later sighted a 12-feet (3.7 m) long animal.
