The stripe-tailed goanna (Varanus caudolineatus) is a species of monitor lizard native to the forests of Western Australia.[1] They grow to around 91 mm in snout to vent length.[2]

Its favoured habitats are grasslands, woodlands, and shrublands, and it appears to inhabit a wide range of habitats dominated by acacia and spinifex.[3]
