A monitor lizard crossing the road in Sri Lanka

This happens often enough in Sri Lanka – wildlife crossing the road. It might be a goat or five or a herd of water buffalo or neighborhood dogs. On this day, it was a monitor lizard.

And, because this is Sri Lanka we're talking about, traffic stops to let the wildlife get out of the way. That's what Sri Lankans do. 🙂

  1. When I lived in Monterey, California, there was a flock of Canadian geese that loved to stop traffic and take their sweet time crossing the road. I love it when we as humans do this.

  2. I love it when humans stop for animal traffic, too. 😀

    This sort of thing happened in Vancouver, BC fairly frequently. A goose and her goslings crossing a major road is one that’s very prominent in my memory. Major traffic jams after that, but still, totally worth it. 🙂
