The Southeast Asian water monitor Varanus salvator is considered to be a generalist carnivore. Here, we describe an observation of a V. s. macromaculatus feeding on a dead adult Bornean bearded pig Sus barbatus barbatus in Borneo, and review other cases of V. salvator feeding on Sus species elsewhere in southeast Asia.
