Mice drop to pose little threat to monitor lizards

Guam - It appears the upcoming mice drop on Andersen Air Force Base will pose little to no threat to the island's monitor lizards. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture's assistant state director Dan Vice, monitor lizards may climb trees but don't forage for food often.
Approximately 2,000 dead mice stuffed with the common pain killer acetaminophen are set to drop atop the forest canopy of northwest field to help curtail the island's brown tree snake population. Vice adds during one observation, a monitor lizard who consumed the bait didn't die.
The drop is set for March or April.
