Dhubb in Bahrain

While on a maintenance visit to check on one of my caches in Bahrain (GC17PJG) which was reported missing, I came face to face with a large Dhubb guarding the site. I was amazed with the shear size and speed of this giant lizard as it moved. There was a time when these lizards were kept as pets for some while considered gourmet food for others. These creatures are strong and it’s thought that when a dhubb clamps its jaw on something, it’s hard to make it let go.
