Gohoro, not a crocodile!

A gohoro (Varanus flavescens?) has been killed in Pakhribas-7. The hunters who had gone deer hunting in the jungles killed it unknowingly.This creature looks like a crocodile but it isn't one but falls in the lizard's family. If it is Varanus flavescens then it is a protected creature in Nepal.
 These men cut the lizard apart and ate its meat.
                   About three feet long, this must have been a baby because we had seen matured ones as long as five feet and much heavier with a hissing that had frightened us to hell........
Ignorance must be the main cause of many wild animals and birds getting extinct.
