Varan is actually a lizard, hence the name Varan which is derived from the genus Varanus which encompasses monitor lizards like the Perentie or Komodo Dragon. Also, in Varan (1958) the characters propose that he is a Varanopode, which is a fictional prehistoric species of Giant Lizard.

So in short, he’s a lizard. Gorosaurus is a dinosaur, Baragon is a dinosaur, Godzilla is a dinosaur, Titanosaurus is a dinosaur, Anguirus is a dinosaur, but not Varan.
Humanity may be violent, but they’re learning. They made me the abomination that I am today but I forgive them and they’ve come to accept me, and now it’s my moral obligation to defend this planet, and everything that resides here including humanity. Now, leave this planet, or I’ll force you.
