[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
Snapshot during one of my golf games at Golf Club Rahman Putra. There are many water ponds on that golf course, ideal living place for Malaysian Water Monitor Lizards.
The Water Monitor Lizards are usually found near watered areas, and are also great swimmers, often seen swimming in the streams, rivers and lakes, in search of prey.
Monitor lizards use the hollows of trees as home or nest although they usually make holes at river-banks or on high-level grounds.
Although they are shy of humans, they sometimes look and forage for food near homes especially in the rural areas, where chickens and ducks are reared in the backyard, their eggs being a favorite food for these lizards.
They may look slow and bulky, but monitor lizards are actually agile and swift when they need to, especially when going after their preys, or when running away from people, especially from the golfers and their hard golf balls.

Well done Miro,
Excellent clarity and detail, the reflection in the eye makes this a spectacular shot,

What is the ruling if the lizard picks up your ball thinking it's an egg and drops it in a water hazard?
Under rule 18-1 "if a ball at rest is moved by an outside agency, there is no penalty and the ball is replaced"
Cheers
