It's definitely not a Water monitor as in Varanus salvator. From your photo I would say you have an Ornate monitor. An easy way for you to check on whether it's an Ornate monitor or a Nile monitor is it's tongue color. Ornate monitors have a pink tongue and Nile monitors have a blueish black tongue. Hope that helps! It's a gorgeous monitor by the way!

Take care,
Charles
