A common sight in the Penang Botanic Gardens. These monitor lizards often try to avoid human contact whenever possible but can be seen usually resting at the lower branches of the trees there.
This rather miniature Japanese Garden was originally created from an exchange programme between the Penang government and the Itabashi city of Japan in 1994. This mini Japanese Garden, used to represent a symbol of friendship between the two cities, was restored in recent years.
Picturesque landscape at the Penang Ayer Itam Dam.
